Windows Server 2003
I have a site hosted with IIS v6 on Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 on a Windows domain (the DC is a spearate machine). The site is accessible by typing in "localhost" on the server, but a "Cannot Display the Webpage" error is displayed (in IE) when trying to access the site using either the public or private IP address of the server. I am able to ping and telnet into port 80 both within and outside the network. The local firewall is disabled, but I have added the "Web Server [HTTP]" exception anyway. The router firewall has been configured to pass incoming requests on port 80 to the webserver, which has a static private IP. Anonymous access to the website has been enabled with the IUSR_ account. This is my first time hosting a website using IIS, and I have exhausted all the resources I know of trying to find a solution. Any Ideas?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In IIS what port is the website set to? If it is set to anything other than 80 (default) you will be unable to access it. Did you assign it a virtual directory name?If so try http://ipaddress/virtual_name.

What happens if you access the website locally using the ip address instead of localhost?
