IIS site not availabel to machines on local network

I have a website running on IIS and I can browse to the website without difficulty on the machine running the website. I can not access the site from other machines on my home network. The machine running the site is using the McAfee Security Center firewall. I have configured the firewall to allow connections from port 80 and have verified that IIS is using port 80. What else could be causing the site to not be available from other machines on my network?

Have you tried already with your firewall disabled?

Is anything showing up in the event log of the IIS system or the client systems?  How about if you completely disable the firewall, can the client systems connect to it then.  From the remote system, can you telnet into port 80 of your IIS system?

I disabled the McAfee firewall with no change. However that got me thinking and I checked to see if the Windows firewall was running which it was. I disabled the windows firewall and was able to get to one of the two sites from another machine on my network. Now I just have to figure out which settings are different between the two sites and I should have everything working.

Note:
I had tried disabling the firewall before with out success but I assumed that McAfee would check for the Windows firewall also running and at least warn me. I should know better than to assume. So in the future I will check for multiple firewalls running at the same time.

I turned on Window authentication on the site I could not get to from another machine on the network and now I can get too that site also. I must need to configure the anonymous access differently.
