IIS7 No access to http

I have a local network with a domain controlled windows 2008 server, and it should also be used as a local development server. It will not be accessed from public area except when used through VPN.

I have setup a dns for lek.moss.local to a site, and it works when i connect to it from a browser on the server with http://lek.moss.local. If I try to access it from one of the computers on the LAN with http://lek.moss.local it doesn't respond at all, If I try to connect to it with https://lek.moss.local it responds.

Site binding to site lek is as follows:
Type  Hostname           Port    Ipadress
http    lek.moss.local     80      *
https                             443    *

A Ping from a client gives 192.168.168.2 which is my server, so the dns seems to work fine from outside.

we tried browsing directly to 192.168.168.2 and it shows the default website when browsing from server, but does not responding when on any client.

The eventlog does not show anything of importance, the httperr log is also not helping anything.

Is for the moment using networkmonitor to see where things go wrong.

Any help is much appreciated.

I have a firewall, but I tried to turn it off, but it didn't help.

Connecting to my server ip http://192.168.168.2 gives no response from client.

I don't have any antivirus application or other third party software installed that I can think of that  could behave like a firewall

OK. now can you ping the 192.168.168.2 from clients? I think there must be a network problem

Hello filantrop,

Have you multiple address ont this server ?
Open IIS Manager, expand Site > click the default site >on the right pane, in the menu, click on Binding (below Edit Site) > Do you have an '*'  for port 80 ?

could you the default port of your IIS in web server to anything else that 80, like 8083
and then try to connect from clients with this url:
http://192.168.168.2:8083

Running network monitor on the server i see 3 requests from clients but no answer from server. Enabled log on firewall for all rules, but did not find any traffic coming from clients. It seems that the traffic is stopped between the ports and the firewall.

Have no time following this up, even if it is interesting.

I have reinstalled the server and it all looks fine again.

Thanks for all your help anyway!

If nothing is even getting to network monitor then you know it is nothing to do with IIS. You have a firewall  or proxy issue.
