I have not been able to get this configuration to serve webpages to the WAN/Internet.  I can see the pages within my LAN, just not externally.  The external IP addresses match from my "server" in the dyndns records and from the external IP check (, etc).  I have tried turning my firewall off, to no avail, even though I have tried entering an exception on port 80 (I have removed it) as well as the world wide web service(HTTP).  

When I was research the differences between Vista home premium and its bigger brothers, I found that H.P. would be allowed for remoting among other things.  Is it possible to build a www/web/WAN/Internet server on IIS 7.0 a vista home premium box?
