    Hi Swati,

    The url is LAN url of your office, you can't access it at home . Because you can't access your office LAN at home. They are in different network.

     

    Thanks,

     http:\\com70\web\default.aspx is NOT an internet URL! You have to:

    1. Get a public hostname for the server
    2. Assign the hostname to the website in IIS
    3. Open up the firewall to allow external connections to the server
    4. Think about possible security implications (encryption, authentication)

    hi Swati,

    I am confused about your description.  If http://com70/webproj/default.aspx  is internet URL, you can access it both in office and at home. If the url is LAN url of your office, then you only can access it in office.  You can't access it at home.

    If I have understood you, please let me know, thanks.

    Hi Swati Jain,

    I don't know what's "after uploading to some sites" meaning?

    But if the url is LAN url of your office, you can't access it at home unless your office LAN has exposed the url to internet.

     

    Thanks,

    after uploading to some sites  means suppose I copy the url and post it on website like asp.net then http:\\com70\web\default.aspx

    then this could be accessible anywhere.

    Hope you will  understand now.If it is not possible at all, that i dont know.
