I have a sharepoint website sitting on a server that is supposed to be accessed over the internet. Inside the server, everything seems to working fine.
If I try to access it from outside of the network, I get an "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" error. IT assures me that the address is mapped correctly. When I type in http://ourwebsite.com the header gets change to servername/Pages/Default.aspx as expected, but I get the error instead of having the page load. If I swap out the sharepoint for a static html webpage, it loads without issue, so I know this problem is sharepoint specific.
I've searched around on the internet, but everything I try doesn't appear to work.
So, what are the steps that need to be taken to change a sharepoint site from being internal only to being viewable over the internet?
Using Sharepoint 3 on Windows 2003 R2, IIS 6.0.
