IIS 7.0

Posted: 06-24-2006, 03:52 PM
Howdy-
I host my own very simple personal web page. After installing Vista, I
managed to figure out how to find, download, and install IIS- this time
version 7. I setup my IIS to the best of my ability, changing 3 variables: I
bound the page to IP 192.168.1.100, where the web page is stored. Secondly, I
directed the server to Drive I:/GradyGroup-again where the web page is
stored. And third, I made sure that index.htm was in the default document
list.

When selecting the View Sites tab I get the following report: "Default web
site is started with binding 192.168.1.100:80 (HTTP) with I:/GradyGroup."

This looks correct to me- but the web page is not found when attempting to
acces it from the INternet.

Ideas?

IIS 7.0

IIS 7.0
Posted: 06-24-2006, 04:04 PM
I have been serving my own small web page, using Windows XP and IIS 5.0. I
downloaded and installed the new Vista on a separate parititon. Then I found
IIS 7.0 and installed it. When setting up my web page, I changed 2 items: the
location of the index.htm file to I:/GradyGroup-- and I bound the page to
192.168.1.100.

When I select the view Sites tab, I receive the following report: "Default
web site is started with binding 192.168.1.100:80 (HTTP) with path
I:/GradyGroup." But, when attempting to access the web page from the
Internet, I get a page not found error message. Since I am able to run the
web page from the adjacent Windows XP partition, I believe it is sdafe to
assume that this is not a network issue.

Ideas?

Thanks

SORRY FOR THE DOUBLE POST- I received an error message that the first message
did not go through- it obviously did, however!!

I had the same problem. It turned out that the built in firewall in
Vista is a little stronger than XP's. Go to the Control Panel, then
Firewall. I added an exception by port 80 on the Firewall at this point.
Close out of everything and it should now be broadcasting to the internet.

Its a bug. Look through the newgroups and you see them everywhere. Don't
worry about it.

Thanks, Luke- that solved the problem. I assumed, silly me, that when I
installed IIS that Port 80 would become unblocked!
