freitasm: In this case, if you enter http://10.1.1.3 on another PC you are not seeing anything? In this case I'd say

a) you do have a software firewall blocking connections
b) you other PC is in another LAN segment (not 10.1.1.x)

When did you turn your firewall off? Have you rebooted your PC since turning your firewall off?

On your other PC try running from a command prompt:

TELNET 10.1.1.3 80 [ENTER]
get [ENTER]

What do you see?


i did this:
TELNET 10.1.1.3 80 [ENTER]
get [ENTER]

and it says:
HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request

And this is from another PC to your server correct? Your server is on 10.1.1.3 correct?

If this is the case, then TELNET proves that there's no firewall blocking access to the server on port 80.

What's the default document name you created? What you get in your browser if you try http://10.1.1.3/[documentname] instead of just http://10.1.1.3?

Yes this is from another pc. Yes my server is 10.1.1.3.
the default page is: Default.aspx
Yay. it worked from the other pc. I get the correct page.
So the only thing now is... Getting it to be accessable from the link i got from dyndns.com correct?

You need to set the default document. If you are using Windows 7 (or Windows Vista), open the IIS Manager, click on your site. You will see an icon "Default Document". Make sure "default.aspx" is on top of the list.

If you don't have "Default Document", on the right-side of that window click on "Install Application from Gallery" and then Web Platform. Select "Customize" on Web Server and checlk the box "Default Document".

Close and open the IIS Manager after the install is finished and you can change the default document list now.

Awesome. That has fixed that problem. I can now type 10.1.1.3 into the web browser on any local pc and it opens the correct page.
So how would i go about getting it to work from that link? Do you have any ideas?

You need to set up port forwarding on your router, but honestly I would think twice about doing that. You don't really seem up to it, and opening a web server to the world opens up some security risks you might not be prepared for.

I'd stick with playing around on your local network first and getting the hang of thigns before you open yourself up to the big bad world.
