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
Giving the detiails:
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.
