I have a Windows 2008R2 server, I'll call this 'dedserver' for clarity, that has hyperv on it. It runs another Windows 2008R2 server with IIS on it, I'll call this 'vpsserver'.
Both have a dedicated public ip address: (faked addresses for security reasons) dedserver: 18.104.22.168 vpsserver: 22.214.171.124
Both are accessible from the internet. I'm actually on the dedserver now typing this. I can access the vpsserver via hyper-v manager and I can goto a computer in the office and home and access the website.
When I attempt to access the website from the dedserver, which resides on the vpsserver, I am getting a timeout.
I rebooted both machines just to make sure. I did a ipconfig /flushdns, no luck.
I then did a tracert thewebsite.com:
C:\Users\someone>tracert www.thewebsite.com Tracing route to techguy.ws [126.96.36.199] over a maximum of 30 hops: 1 PLATINUM [188.8.131.52] reports: Destination host unreachable. Trace complete.
It shows it is going through the dedserver to access the vpsserver, which makes sense.
What am I missing? Why can I not access the vpsserver's website from the dedserver?
I would like to use this for testing and it's really causing me to have a bad week :P
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
