Hi there,

I've been trying to publish a webserver through ISA 2006. But I'm very close to giving up now.

I've done this before, but I can't seem to make it work now.

The website can be published on any other port except port 80.

I have OWA, SMTP, POP3 running on the same network , and are published accordingly and working as configured.

When I telnet from an external computer onto my external IP, I don't get Connecting..
but I get a blackbox which doesnt respond to commands like GET

Any help on this would be really appreciated

Do you have a listener for port 80? Do you have IIS or another Webserver installed on that machine already using port 80? Can you post more details about your publishing rule?

Thank you.

Our internal domain is called domain.local
I've set up an internal zone called domain.com.bh
and www.domain.com.bh points to 192.168.20.1
How do you assign a port to domain name alias?

Internal IP of the Web Server:
Port where the site is published:
FQDN of Public Name of the site:

Thank you very much.

Hi,

based on your publishing rule I think that the best option is to add a host header to your web site. It seems the issue here is that ISA is forwarding the original header "www.domain.com.bh" which is not recognized as a published site by IIS. Adding that host header (basically an alias for a website) you should have the site immediately available on the Internet.

Since I don't know which version of IIS you're running, please find below the instructions for each IIS version:

IIS 6:

To assign multiple host header names to a single Web site:

1. In  IIS Manager, expand the local computer, click the Web Sites  folder, right-click the Web site for which you want to assign a host  header name, and then click Properties.
2. Click  the Web Site tab.
3. In  the IP Addresslist, select the IP address that you want assigned  to this Web site.
4. Click Advanced.
5. Under  Multiple identities for this Web Site, select the IP address,  and then click Edit.
6. In  the Host Header Value box, type the host header name (for  example, www.contoso.com).
7. Click  OK twice.

IIS 7:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753195%28WS.10%29.aspx

Hope that helps,

Thanks for the tip. This helped in the configuration though.

I pinpointed the problem to be with my router.
The router was accepting all connections but on port 80 for some reason, even though the default server under NAT was set as my ISA server. I upgraded the firmware on the router and setup the port forwarding and the website started working.

Your help was invaluable

Many Thanks
