I have build a web site and deployed it on my iis 7 / vista. I can access the site from localhost but not from the network. computers on the network have "ping" working to my machine and I have turned off my firewall.

Is there any tweak in iis 7 to allow remote calls? Any other way to check this?

  • What ip address is the web site bound to? – joeqwerty Jan 31 '10 at 15:12
  1. Right click on the website in IIS and click on Site Bindings.
  2. Click on the host in the list and click Edit.
  3. Make sure that the Port is set to 80 and that IP Address is set to All Unassigned.

It turned out to be a DNS issue. When I access the site from IP it works. Strange though how in my previous xp/iis6 machine it worked out of the box and now there is this DNS issue.


If you haven't already done this, turn on both network discovery and file and printer sharing.

  • -1. Network Discovery and File & Printer sharing have no bearing on a web site running in IIS. – joeqwerty Jan 31 '10 at 18:19
