IIS 6.0 - external access problem

Posted on 2003-11-02

I have IIS 6 running on 2003 Web server.

When I access the web site locally I have no problems but when I try to use the external IP via router rdr I am asked to login. (ie internet )

There is no PDC on the network just a stand alone webserver.

At the moment I just want to access a simple HTML page.

It must be something simple but I have been chasing my tail trying to find it and now I just want to throw the damn thing out the window!!!!

I know this is probably a bit to vague of a question but any help would be great.

I think your router does not forward the request to your webserver! Does your router have a web interface? If so, thats what it's asking you to log on to.
You need to look into using NAT from your router.

OR make sure your directory has the correct permission applied to it, but you said you can access it without a problem locally, so I think this is not the case, I think it's the first issue I raised.

Cheers for the input Taco.

I had entered the NAT information as below but it is looking at the router interface as you suggested. Have I missed the point or does the below look correct? The router is a Solwise SAR110

Tried all sorts. 2 setups are below.

NAT Rule Information
Rule ID:   2  
Rule Flavor:   RDR  
IF Name:   ppp-0  
Protocol:   ANY  
Local Address From:   192.168.7.42
Local Address To:   192.168.7.42
Global Address From:   81.174.242.93
Global Address To:   81.174.242.93
Destination Port From:   80  
Destination Port To:   80  
Local Port:   80  

Rule ID:   1  
Rule Flavor:   BIMAP  
IF Name:   ALL  
Local Address From:   192.168.7.42
Local Address To:   192.168.7.42
Global Address From:   81.174.242.93
Global Address To:   81.174.242.93

I'm no expert at routers, but it looks ok

Except I guess protocol could be TCP
What does "IF Name" do? that one and Rule Flavor I have never seen.

NAT Rule Information
Rule ID:   2

IF name is the name of the channel - ppp-0 is correct (99% sure)
Rule flavor - rdr is redirect and bimap is two way translations. - either should work. rdr (Redirect) allows you to map port numbers as well as IP ranges.
Protocol with ANY should also be OK.

Rule ID:   1  
Rule Flavor:   BIMAP  
IF Name:   ALL  
Local Address From:   192.168.7.42
Local Address To:   192.168.7.42
Global Address From:   81.174.242.93
Global Address To:   81.174.242.93

NAT Rule Statistics
Rule ID:   1  
Total Number of Translation w/ This Rule:   11 Sessions
Total Number of Inbound Packets w/ This Rule:   2246  
Total Number of Outbound Packets w/ This Rule:   42  
NAT Rule Status
Active Translation w/ This Rule:   11 Sessions

I cannot see whats wrong with the setup.

Also there is the rule below which allows access to the internet and changes outgoing IP's to the static IP.  I changed the ID so it came after the rdr or bimap but this doesn't seem to help either.


NAT Rule Information
Rule ID:   3  
Rule Flavor:   NAPT  
IF Name:   ALL  
Local Address From:   0.0.0.0
Local Address To:   255.255.255.255
Global Address From:   81.174.242.93
Global Address To:   81.174.242.93

NAT Rule Statistic
Rule ID:   3  
Total Number of Translation w/ This Rule:   16 Sessions
Total Number of Inbound Packets w/ This Rule:   40070  
Total Number of Outbound Packets w/ This Rule:   34769  
NAT Rule Status
Active Translation w/ This Rule:   16 Sessions

So as you can see, something is happening, but not what I want!!!!!

As much as I wan't to I can't help you further, as I am no network expert. This problem (if it's router related) would be much better asked in the Network section....

Cheers Taco,

Your right, but I think it is more a peculiarity of this router rather than a case not doing the right thing.

I will chase the manufacturer support on this one I think. Thanks for the input though, I was unsure if IIS or the router was the problem and you helped me there, so I am going to gladly give you the points.

Thanks very much
