I can't access my webserver from other clients on same network.
when i type url as a http://fully qualified domain or http://IP address of websever on same sever it opens default page in Inetpub/wwwroot directory. when i try to do same from other Client PC I get the error [Forbidden 403: Access Forbidden 'You don't have permission to access / on this server.']
The wwwroot & script virtul directory has Read/script/Execute permission enabled on IIS server as well they have permission for Anonymous Access (those folder has access added to Anonymous Internet User with Full control on it). I have default.htm & default.asp present in wwwroot directory.
I also have some website with virtual directory on IIS that i can't access same as above problem.
I am also using ISAPI on IIS as JRun Connector Filter to connect JRUN webserver with IIS server. jrun.dll lies in c:/inetpub/script directory & it has execute permision,it' up & work well on same server but can't access any websites from another client pc.

What type of authentication are you using at IIS level? Are you sure that you only have checked "Anonymous"?

Did you set "default page" ?

1) Try to create new page "test.asp"
2) From the remote machine try to http://ip/test.asp

See if it works.

If yes it means that your application doesn't have default page or it's default page has some strange permissions problems.
