Setup to allow external access to my internal website

Hi, is there a way to publish my internal website on IIS to be published securely on the internet, so that I am able to access it via my PDA.


Many thanks,


- Josh

Yes, you can publish you website on internet.

You would require to either port forward 80 from publicIP to private IP address on your router or firewall.

What kind of firewall/router are you using.

Do you use ISA Server or some other hardware firewall/router for internet access.

What kind of internet you have.

If you have static IP address, then you can go ahead and purchase a domain name for your site.

IF you have dynamic IP address, then you need to use a service like dydns.

Apologies for the late response, we use a hardware based firewall (Checkpoint) and ISA is just used a internet proxy. I've setup on IIS a virtual directory called http://oncall, there is no specific domain purchased for this. Is there no other way of accessing this website on IIS other than purchasing a domain name.

Yes, there is a way to acess your website from outside without domain name.

You can access it using IP address.

All you have to do is to do a port forward on port 80 to the local IP address of server.

IF you have multiple public IPs then you can also do a static nat.

Then from outside, just fill in the public IP address of the website in the browser and it will open.

http://x.x.x.x/virtual_directory_name

If you want, you can get a third level domain name for free. Like YOURNAME.ABCZ.COM etc.

Just look at this site:  http://freedns.afraid.org/zc.php?from=L2R5bmFtaWMv

They offer free subdomain registration facility. Just signup for free and create your own subdomain.
