How do I allow local machine access to IIS7 when IPv4 restrictions are enabled?

Hi

This is driving me mad. I can restrict access to IIS7 websites for external IP addresses but I have no idea how to allow the local machine access. I get this error:

"HTTP Error 403.6 - Forbidden
The IP address from which you are browsing is not permitted to access the requested Web site."

I tried an allow rule :

127.0.0.1(255.255.255.255)
and
192.168.1.1(255.255.255.0)

This doesn't work. When I looked at the website log files I noticed the IPv6 address was being logged. Do I need to allow an IPv6 address access? IIS7 only seems to allow IPv4 restrictions.

Please help
Thanks
Andrew

Hi,

what do you get when you resolve 'localhost' from the server console?

i.e. c:\>ping localhost

if you access from the local system to http://127.0.0.1 that should force it to connect from the ip4 loopback IP.

cheers.

Hi

I played around with it a bit more. I now have IIS to deny unspecified and allow a public IP. This seems to allow the local IP access too (which is what I want). It's a shame the documentation isn't clearer about this. Anyway, thanks for your help.

Cheers
Andrew

Have you tried setting the DisableLoopbackCheck value in the registry (search the web for the details)

Hi

I didn't try changing the DisableLoopbackCheck. As I see it the real issue is that IIS7 doesn't allow you to set IPv6 addresses as restrictions using the IIS GUI. I found out that you can add IPv6 restrictions directly in the configuration file. I downloaded the IIS7 Administration Pack which provides a configuration editor UI.

Thanks
