  • User599355300 posted


    I have set up an AWS EC2 instance and have IIS running.  I have set up a website and can access it from localhost on the machine's browser.  Is it possible to be able to access this from an external  PC by using Http://vm.ip.address . The website is running on port 80

    Any help appreciated.

    Many thanks,

    The common approach is purchasing a domain name and setting up DNS to resolve the domain name to your web servers IP address.
