idiot level IIS question (two sites, different ports) RRS feed

  • Question

  • User250787859 posted

    Hello! I am trying to set up two sites on same server with different ports. Let's call the server WEBSERV1.

    1. I have Default Website which is All Unassigned, port 80, no host header. It has a web application called tdd.

    Site has anonymous authentication disabled, windows auth is enabled.

    I can browse to Default Website and hit the IIS default page from http://localhost/ or from http://webserv1/ on a workstation.

    I can browse tdd web application from http://localhost/tdd or from a http://webserv1/tdd on a workstation.

    2. I have a second site called wss which is All Unassigned, port 8080, no host header.

    Site has anonymous authentication disabled, windows auth is enabled. Site also uses PHP.

    I can browse and hit it from http://localhost:8080 

    On a workstation, if I go to http://webserv1:8080 

    I get:

    This site can’t be reached

    The connection was reset.

    Is there anything obvious that I am doing wrong for trying to set this up?

    I realize the better way to do it is using A records connected to IP and then using host headers and binding to IPs, but I am trying to get this to work in Dev with the different ports.

    Like Windows Firewall? TCP port 8080 for inbound traffic.

    LOL yes, that is obvious and also the correct answer. Thanks for catching that. I really appreciate it.
