I am using Windows XP Pro SP2 with IIS installed and a Zoom ADSL X5 Router with NAT firewall to access the internet and I am wanting to host my own low activity website, but I am getting strange error messages....
1.I have given my web server a static IP address (10.0.0.100)
2.I ensured that index.html was included in the Documents tab of the default web server
3.I have put a simple welcome page at the root of my webspace http://10.0.0.100/
and any one of the PC's on my LAN bring up the web page perfectly The page is called "index.html"
4.I used the Virtual server in the X5 Modem to map port 80 to the IP address 10.0.0.100
However when I enter the external IP address http://217.x.x.x/
i get a login pop up box appearing.
So I try http://217.x.x.x/index.html
and I get a message that says:
Hasbani Web Server Error Report
Server Error:501 Not Implemented
No RPM for this combination of URL and method
Any suggestions would be much appreciated... N.B. I have already looked at microsoft website and changed a couple of settings in Internet Options converninh Http 1.1 but it still doesnt work.
