Cannot access created sharepoint site other than server machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have installed SP2013 in windowsserver2008, i have chosen standalone server while configuring the server. I have created a toplevel site using Central Admin with Admin permissions. I opened the newly created site in the browser successfully. But i cannot connect this site from another machine using browser, i can able to open the site in the same installed server not in another machine using a browser. Can you please suggest me how can i share the created site to users to get work around.

  • This sounds like a networking/dns issue and nothing related to SharePoint. Once your networking is setup correctly, you should be able to access the farm with the url http://{Server Name}/. But there has to be a dns entry for [Server Name] on your domain controller that points to the ip address of your SharePoint server and the SharePoint Server has to be reachable over the network on port 80.

  • From point of view it sounds like either the firewall is not configured correctly or the other users are not aware of the server (keyword: dns entry). Have you tried to access the server using the fqdn, have you added the url of the SharePoint to trusted sites in IE? Have you configured alternate access mappings?

    With the amount of informations you're providing, it's hard to point out something specific, you can only guess.
