Can't access website hosted using IIS 7.0 on a server residing on my home network

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I am able to access the website I am hosting on my home webserver, but I cannot access it from any computer on the same home network.

The web server IP address is, and I am using IIS 7.0 on Windows Server 2008 ("dmserver").  My website uses a DDNS URL ("PracticeIntranets.TZO.com") secured througn TZO.com. Requests are redirected to port 8090 of my router, which is attached to my cable modem.

I want to access the site from a computer on the same domain as the webserver, the domain is DMCPA.  Here is what I have tried:
Result: Server Error 404 - File or directory not found.
