Hi there I would like some help getting a Mapguide site published on the Internet using MS IIS, currently I have the site on the localnet running smooth and without problems. My next challenge is to get it published on the Internet, my problem being that I am not that clued up on IIS and the other being its on a clients server and I have no idea how their setup works and there is not much help from the client  side IT as they are not clued up at all. Would it be possible to give me a step by step setup on how to publish the site on the Internet through MS IIS, aswell as some help on where to look and how to go about doing it on a client domain with no help from the IT people.
Thanks in advance

Hi,

Do you want to visit your iis site from the internet?

First you need to have a static IP address from your ISP and set it on your site. Then buy a DNS provider or a DynDNS solution in order to link your ip web name to your IP address.

Let me know if this is what you want and if you have any other doubts.

Rgds.

In order to browse the web from outside you have to enable Directory Browsing.

Follow this step by step to setup authentication for internet users:

Futhermore, what firewall do you have in order to setup the publishing? ISA for instance?
