Allow access to .NET website hosted on 8081 or other ports
Posted on 2008-06-10
I am trying to setup my webserver IIS 6.0 .
It hosts my .NET website designed Visual Studio 2003 on port 8081
The way it is currenlty set up, I can browse the website locally (localhost:8081/login.aspx), but can't browse it from a PC that is in the same local network. Also outside web users can't see it.
I think it is just a matter of setting a certain, necessary permissions.
If I allow maximum access to Everyone, ASP.NET, IUSR, IWAM etc accounts then it works fine.
What are the regular basic steps (not jepardizing security of the server) that you would perform to allow access to this site for local network PC or outside web user?
What accounts must have what permissions and where?
I don't want to keep my C drive and my WebFolder open to everyone or have any other un necessary volnerable settings.
Thank you in advance
