I'm having some difficulties due to my ISP blocking port 80. Can someone help? Here's my config and my ultimate goal:
1) I have a Windows 2003 Server running IIS 6, and my website is configured on port 8080.
2) I'm using a dyndns service to host digitone.homeip.net which resolves to my external IP address (184.108.40.206) and is automatically updated when it changes.
3) I've set my host headers in IIS to digitone.homeip.net and it listens on TCP port 8080, the other host header in the config has the value localhost and is set to TCP port 80.
4) both host header values point to my internal IP which is set statically (192.168.15.101)
5) my router has port 8080 wide open and points to 192.168.15.101
When attempting to access the site from the outside world, nothing happens, however from my machines on my internal network, my website displays.
What did I miss? Is my host header value set correctly? Ultimately, I'd like it to appear that my website is hosted on port 80, while in fact its being hosted on 8080, can this be transparent to the user so they don't have to type http://digitone.homeip.net:8080?
Thanks for any help....
