Cannot open website from network computer
Hi. I have develop a website (created with VS 2008) using IIS 7.5 on Win7.
I can open the website local with http://localhost or http://<ip addr>, but cannot open the website from network computer (with http://<ip addr>.
Pinging <ip addr> no problem.
Network link with a switch and accessing the shares folder is ok.
Is there any setting in IIS or firewall that block it?

I assume that the default port of the IIS is 80 and you haven't changed it.

From any other computer on your network, please run the following command in Command Prompt Window:


telnet <ip-addr of machine running website> 80
If you can connect from telnet then the site should also open in browser from this test machine.

If the port is blocked, the above command will fail. Then you need to change your firewall settings on the IIS Server machine [probably windows firewall if you are not using any 3rd party]

Hope this hepls [:)]
