connection has timed out ... iis setting?

Ok...I have IIS set up with a web site.  I am running Windows XP.  The IP address is 192.168.0.100  If I go to the site on my computer using the browser, it works fine!  And I pinged to the IP successfully.  But when I go to the site on another computer, it says "The connection timed out."  I have the connection timeout set to 20 seconds...but I've tried all kinds of values, and nothing works...please help!!  What can I do?  Both computers are connected to the internet.

Do you have any firewall on your network? If so, check that there is no restriction on the 80 port and/or the communication between the two machines.

Dear redmission,

Before going into any detail, did you use http://192.168.0.100 to connect to your IIS website from another computer? This, quite obviously, will not work if you have tried this as it is not the localhost. Try http://www.whatsmyip.org to find your 'real ip' and use that to connect to your website from another computer:

e.g. if IP on 'Whats My Ip Address' comes as 82.4.23.2445.3 (invalid) then you would use:
http://localhost on your computer - as it already knows it

AND

http://82.4.23.2445.3 on another computer.

Sorry if you have already done it this way, but just to make sure :)
