I am trying to access
http://localhost:25436/ from my iPad. I have looked at many similar questions on Stack Overflow and elsewhere and none of them have fixed the problem.
I am using Visual Studio 2013 to build the site so I'm pretty sure my application.config path is
This is what my site bindings looks like:
<bindings> <binding protocol="http" bindingInformation="*:25436:*" /> <binding protocol="https" bindingInformation="*:44300:*" /> </bindings>
I have ran these commands in the command prompt as administrator:
netsh http add urlacl url=http://*:25436/ user=everyone
netsh http add urlacl url=https://*44300/ user=everyone
And I have ran this command to allow it through the firewall:
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="IISExpressWeb" dir=in protocol=tcp localport=25436 profile=private remoteip=localsubnet action=allow
When I run IIS Express I see:
Successfully registered URL "http://*:25436/" for site "MySite" application "/"
Successfully registered URL "https://*:44300/" for site "MySite" application "/"
Registration completed for site "MySite"
My IP is
10.0.0.249 and when I try to access
http://10.0.0.249:25436 from my iPad it sits there trying to connect for a while and then I get the error:
This webpage is not avaialable
Also, nothing happens in the IIS Express window (no message saying that there was a connection attempt or anything).
I have also tried the
iisexpress-proxy. I installed the proxy using npm and ran this command:
iisexpress-proxy 25436 as 3000
Then, when I try to access
http://10.0.0.249:3000 from my iPad, I see this message in the IIS Express window:
Request started: "GET" http://localhost:25436/
And almost immediately after that it says:
Request ended: http://localhost:25436/ with HTTP status 200.0
However, the web page on my iPad still continues trying to load the web page forever.
I would like to do this without the proxy if I can, but the proxy seems to be closer to working. However, I can't figure out what I'm missing or why the page won't load.
