Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have web site served via IIS 7. I can access it locally (on the network/LAN), but cannot access it from other computers on the Internet.

Could you please explain how to resolve this?

Thanks!

You will get a better answer if you provide us with your internal server LAN IP and your public internet IP and also a description of how your internal server is wired up to the Internet. –  sybreon Oct 29 '09 at 6:17
    
You're kidding right? S/He doesn't need to supply actual IP addresses - just the topology and whether there are any firewalls in the way. –  dunxd Nov 22 '10 at 10:56

1 Answer 1

This is better suited for serverfault, but you need to diagnose the problem using a bottom up approach.

first , go through this checklist.

1) is your physical cabling working

2) is your routing to the server working ?

3) are the ports to the webserver working ? Check any firewall running ?

4) is the web server instance configured properly to let you access remotely ?
