IIS won't work inside the network? RRS feed

  • User-350600663 posted

    Hi all:

    I've been developing a website on my local workstation using ASP.NET using Visual Studio 2008.  Everything works great and I can run it all locally with zero issues.  I connect to a database on a seperate server, and all's well.  I have a presentation to do tomorrow, and since I'm still in the "prototype" phase, I want/need to show the users what I've done so far.  I thought this was as simple as sharing out my project folder, and then linking to my workstation (in the same network) using a url like http:compname/project/default.aspx  For some reason, it's not working.  Zippo.  IIS is running, but oddly when I go into the IIS Management Console, there's nothing listed in the left hand navigation tree; not even my computer name.  As I'm new to the organization, this workstation was used by someone else in the same role as I have now for MANY years.  It's loaded, and I'm lost as to why this simple task can't be completed.  Any suggestions?  I'm in a time crunch as well, so please, any feedback is useful right now.

     Thanks in advance!

    This is not really an IIS issue. It is a networking/proxy/firewall/routing issue.

    Can you ping to your machine from another?

    Have you open up firewalls for http traffic to your machine?

    Are you logged on as a user with local admin privileges?
