Host name site collections, access from different machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have created 2 host name site collections
    http://site1.dev.com.au and
    http://site2.dev.com.au

    I have added these 2 entries in host file
    127.0.0.0      site1.dev.com.au and
    127.0.0.0      site2.dev.com.au

    I can access both sites, now I am trying to access these sites from a different machine, both entries have been added to DNS.

    I have checked default IIS application running on port 80 is stopped becasue my sharepoint web application is also running on port 80. When i try to access site1.dev.com.au from a different machine I see default IIS page, why is that happening? It should show sharepoint site.

    How can I fix this issue.
    Do I need to remove entries from host file?
    Do I need to add bindings in IIS web application

  • If the sites already work fine (with host entries), normally you have nothing to do.

  • Hello,

    If you want to acccess to these web site from other machine, you need to use only DNS entries.

    All configurations must be apply in Central admin (all you need to do).

    Thank you
