    Case: website can not be accessed from other PCs.

    OS: Windows 2003 R2 standard 64 Bit
    Webserver: IIS 6.0.
    DNS record: Checked and it is correctly pointed like this: www.mysite.com
    A 64.**.**.***
    Home Directory: set up correctly
    Home Directory Security: Everyone can read
    IIS: enabled anonymous Log in

    The site can not be accessed from any PCs other than the server
    itself. Not through Domain Name or IP address.

    Help please. Thanks

    What does "can not be accessed" mean exactly?  Is there a specific error message?  What happens? Are you runing Windows Firewall on the box?  Are you trying to access over the internet or local network?

    The connection has timed out

    The server at www.****.com is taking too long to respond.

        *   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few

        *   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network

        *   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
              that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

    I am trying to access it from the internet. The above is the error message.

     The server is hosted by Aplus, I am not sure if there is a firewall or not.

     On the server itself, I can browse with www.***.com

    Sounds like the DNS change has not made it through the network yet.  What happens if you ping that address over the internet?

    If I ping my site


    it gives the correct IP address: 64.**.**.***

    You need to follow-up with Aplus then so they can determine why you can't access your site.

    Thanks for the advice. I have found out the APlus has a firewall blocked all the traffic.

    Now it is ok to access through internet.

    Again. THanks
