Helping a friend with a project where he wants to host a simple site in Azure using IIS (2012R2).

 

Got the server up and running and IIS installed and running. If we point our browser to the Microsoft provided DNS, it shows the default IIS page

 

 

 

 

My friend wants to deploy a different site which he's built already on the server but with a different port.

 

It shows up okay on the server with localhost:777

 

but we can't work out how to get external access. I have created a network security group to route port 777 to the server (I did it for 80 and 443 also and I see 3380 was on by default of course).

 

Our external DNS is <name>.australiasoutheast.cloudapp.azure.com

 

What I have done also is look at IIS binding and try to bind port 777 to the internal IP and use the above as the host name but I get an error invalid host name. If I leave the host name blank it saves but external access doesn't work.

 

Have I missed out something fundamental?

 

Thanks

  • Check the IIS site binding is on the correct IP (not just 127.0.0.1)
  • Check the windows firewall on the VM is allowing the port
  • Double check the azure firewall

You will have to browse to <name>.australiasoutheast.cloudapp.azure.com:777 , I presume you are doing so

Thanks. Both good suggestions. I hadn't considered that the internal firewall might stop inbound traffic on port 777 but had considered the external Azure security group rule.

 

We are using the full DNS:777 for the URL.

 

Not sure what is meant by the correct internal IP? The default is * but I also tried the actual internal IP (as on the adapter) and that didn't work either.

 

Do I need the host name in the Bindings as I could not work out what that host name would be.

Firewall rule change fixed it. Thanks
