configuring a .net site in my iis problem!
iis help

 1:53 pm on Dec 20, 2006 (gmt 0)

Hi guys,i have a asp.net site in my iis in xp pro at home installed and i want it to be seen through internet.

I have opened ports in my dsl router for the web server,i have set up the security permissions of the folder of my site and i have enabled the anonymous access so that everyone can see the site in the internet.Also i have enabled the iusr and iwam accounts so that they have read rights to that folder in the security and share tabs in xp.

But still noone can see the site.I have tried everything but there is no result.

Can anyone help me?

you say nothing about fixed IP, dns, name servers, etc

First of all, can YOU see the site from your own machine? If not, then that's a whole other issue to resolve before troubleshooting for other people.

How are people trying to see your site? I assume that they are typing in the IP address. Since you're behind a DSL router, are you sure you have given them your public IP address that the rest of the world sees and not just a private IP address assigned to you by the router? What is the error people get when they try to get to your site? (Knowing that will considerably narrow down the troubleshooting.)

Yeah, you might need to forward the port (80) to your PC in the router admin tool.
