I'm running Windows Vista Business and installed IIS 7 (I changed no settings in it, everything is on default). I have a domain and have setup Dynamic DNS for it with the host. I use a program provided by the host to update my server's IP. I have a Netgear router which I've configured the HTTP port (80) to forward to my server.
The problem is when I try to access the default website by typing in the domain's URL, all I get is a "Waiting for http://www.mydomain.com" message which eventually just returns:
This webpage is not available.
The webpage at http://www.mydomain.com/ might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
More information on this error Below is the original error message
Error 101 (net::
ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): Unknown error.
Here's what I tried:
- I disabled the firewall on my server completely to see if it would resolve the issue, but no joy.
- I've pinged the www.mydomain.com and it replies perfectly.
- I've tried to flush the DNS (ipconfig /flushdns) via command prompt.
- Accessing http://localhost on the server and http://myservername from other network computers works just fine.
I don't know what I'm missing, anyone have any ideas?
