unable to browse IIS on windows xp from remote machines

Dear All

I have a newly installed windows xp(with sp2)  PC with the following

1. asp.net 1.1 framework(required for a web based software provided by a company)
2. IIS
3. software provided by the company (shared as webshare, as suggested by the company providing the software)
4. firewall activated, to allow http service
5. dynamic IP
6  SQL 2000 personal edition

i am able to access the webbased software on this machine, but i am not able to access the same from remote machines on the network.

kindly let me know where is the problem.

thanks all for sparing their valuable time

What error you are getting while browsing the site ?

Issue seems to be is most likely the IP Address. You'll need a fixed IP for your XP box or Dynamic DNS update service from provider like www.no-ip.com so it can update the host name with correct machine IP whenever it changes.
