IIS role is installed in Server. Server has 2 NICs with fixed address on the same subnet.

Firewall allows these apps and features: WWW Services (HTTP) Secure WWW Services (HTTPS) Remote Access Remote Desktop

I cannot access the IIS 8 on the Server from the Internet. Only from LAN. I can access the Internet fine. For some reason,when I go to website. It only detects my local address (192.168.x.x ).

Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you.

More info needed. How is your server connected to the Internet? If there's a router is it NATing incoming requests to the correct IP? – Chris McKeown Sep 6 '13 at 23:14
Yes. We have a firewall in place. Service is provided by a third party some other servers are accesible for Terminal Services. – Enrique Soto Sep 9 '13 at 14:07
All servers have a NAT address. It is only this server we can't access. The other servers are 2008 R2 versions. Maybe some settings on this Server version are different. Because I compared the firewall exceptions and set them the same. – Enrique Soto Sep 9 '13 at 14:17
