    But when I try to access my site http://192.168.0.1:81/Login.aspx, the reaction of the Diagnostic Tool is different - the tool says that ressource 192.168.0.1 is online, but doesn't answer to connection attempts (81 - web site port, Login.aspx - web site start page, for the confidelity reasons I didn't show my real IP address).

    Hello,

    Make sure your firewall allows the port 81. Try by disabling your firewall. Also, can you ping 192.168.0.1 without any timeouts or anyother type of errors?

    usually just the IP:PORT

    so if the computer that has the iis has an ip of 192.168.0.1 , and the port is the default 80, then type this in your web browser

    http://192.168.0.1:80/

    Hello,

    Thank you for response. The article in the link doesn't match my setup.

    Article setup: Windows Server 2003 + IIS 6.0

    My setup: Windows 7 (Home Premium) + IIS 7.5

    For this reason the suggestions in the chapter How to remotely administer IIS by using the Remote Administration (HTML) Tool cannot be directly applied in my case. For example in subchapter Turn on the Remote Administration (HTML) Tool there is the following instruction (point 5):
    Click to select the Remote Administration (HTML) check box, and then click OK

    In my version of the IIS there is no such checkbox. Nevertheless I checked almost all options under the branch Internet Information Service. Unfortunately after such setup I couldn't find Administration option when opening IIS, and consequently couldn't identify the numbers for TCP port and SSL port (necessary information for subsequent actions).

    Regards.

    Thanks for response. I tried your suggestion. Unfortunately doesn't work - after brief search the message appears in the IE:

    Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage.

    When I click on the Diagnose Connection Problem, the tool couldn't find nothing.

    But when I try to access my site http://192.168.0.1:81/Login.aspx, the reaction of the Diagnostic Tool is different - the tool says that ressource 192.168.0.1 is online, but doesn't answer to connection attempts (81 - web site port, Login.aspx - web site start page, for the confidelity reasons I didn't show my real IP address).

    I throught again my request.

    If somebody experienced the same problem - access IIS hosted Web site (Windows 7, IIS 7.5) from another computer.

    Thanks in advance.

    Whatever you do, give attention to your IIS Hosting machine's firewall. It could be the main culprit.

    Happy coding.

    Does IIS work on the machine itself?  If so, it's a network issue, not IIS.  If not, you have IIS configured incorrectly and should ask in the forums at iis.net.  Make sure you test with a Hello World app.

    I too had the same issue, turned off windows firewall to test and it worked fine!
