Trying to access site via IP. Server Timeout.

I've created a site, and I am able to access it by going to my IP address from any computer on my home network.  When I try to get to it from a computer outside my network, I get a server timeout message.

I'm using:
Windows 7 Beta
IIS 7.5
Linksys WRT54G
Cox Cable
Any help would be appreciated. I feel that I'm almost there, but that some tiny little thing is keeping this from working.

To access from outside your network, you need to use a public ip / an ip that's recognizable from outside your network. Open the command prompt and type:

ping [the ip addess]

(wihout []) and hit enter.

See if the ping is answered. If not, you need to set up your network so that the ip does respond to a ping. It should work then.

How you tried to access your site - with internal IP (192.168...) or external one (It will be good to have dedicated IP address)?

You should also check your firewall settings if it allows access to port 80.

To diagnose this problem you could also to write in command prompt - "telnet IPaddress 80".

From inside my network on another computer
Ping statistics for
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss)

From outside my network
Request timed out.

I am trying to access it using my external IP address.
For the firewall settings, is it the local port, remote port, or both which should be set to 80?
I tried "telnet 80" and got back: 'telnet' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

It depends, if you have a firewall router you should map 80 port to your internal web server 80 port. Default HTTP port is 80, so you should have access to your web server 80 port.

It turns out that everything was set up correctly, technically.

After some more investigation, I found that Cox Cable blocks port 80 unless you pay extra.

I reworked things to use port 8080, and everything works as it should now.

Thank you for trying to help though :)

Redirect 301 when accessing my web server via IP address
Greetings everybody! For some odd reason (it's probably my fault, somehow), Google is indexing pages on my blog via the web server IP address.  This is driving me crazy and I want to stop it.  So, in order to do that, I need to intercept requests for the IP address and do a 301 redirect to the domain name so that Google will stop indexing it.  What would be the easiest way to implement this? How can I globally intercept each and every request to my web application?  I do not want to have to perform this check on every Page_Load because that's not how I roll...

Caching Mode Tries to Access PO Via UNC Path, Not IP Address
GW 6.0.2. Client I created this particular user's caching mailbox over a year ago. Somehow, someway now instead of accessing the PO through the IP address, it attempts to use the UNC Path (\\Server\Volume\PO). This works fine in the office, but of course outside the office, it does not. I can't seem to find where/how to force it to look at the IP address. I think if I recreate the caching mailbox, it will behave itself once again, but over 6000 messages means it will take a while. Any thoughts? Brian Tomarchio wrote: > I can't seem to find wh...

custom server control deployed for multiple site on server

Very similar to a standard CMS solution.  Where I think this is different is most of the content will be custom server controls that will act like widgets on the site.  Client will be able to place them where they want from the admin and it will save this to the db.  My pr...
