Default IIS and ASP.NET2

I am having trouble with setting up IIS on my machine at home.
Or at least I think it is IIS giving me the trouble.

I have created a demo project with VS2005 beta and published it to a virtual directory in wwwroot.
I have redirected all incoming requests to the site.
All seems to be ok locally.
I can address the browser to the local machine IP and the website appears.
But when accessed from outside a Connection timeout
error occurs

Giving the detiails:
Code:
Background:
The gateway could not receive a timely response from the Web site you are trying to access. This might indicate that the network is congested, or that the Web site is experiencing technical difficulties.
I have a static IP and domain name, both of which ping in good time.
I have redirected my port 80 to the web server (In fact the only machine at my house) through the ADSL router.
I have IIS 5.1 Running on my XP Prof Machine

I had previously had a ASP.NET app running on the machine which was visable to the "outside world".

My guess is that it is something to do with permissions but I do not know much about these aspects of .NET and IIS.

Can anyone make some suggestions as to how to find my error, I have not had much luck looking for resources on this.

Ideally what I am looking for is a checklist of things I need to have set on IIS to get a ASP.NET2 site running correctly.

Any Advise would be appreciated.

Is SP2 on your machine? Have you configured its firewall?

Are you accessing the Router's IP or your IP given to you by your ISP?

Stu,
You got it in one,
SP2 XP Firewall needed to allow port 80 through.
I installed the beta about the same time as SP2.
I have never used the Windows Firewall had not thought about it at all.

Instead I have spent the last two weeks wrestling with IIS of an evening.
I must have tried every configuraiton possible in IIS.

Thanks Heaps
