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

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.
