IIS settings for webresume from home network windows 7

Hello Experts:

 I am trying to get my resume running from my home network using windows 7 & ISS 7. I need the basics (I hope). I have IIS okay when I go internally to http://localhost/. I can view what I a want internatly. I cannot get IIS to work with my top level domain or resolve towards the outside. Is from inside to the outside what IIS 7 needs to know.... (right?)

My high-level domain name is yyyXXX.com. I have it with register.com pointing to our home network address - then port forwarding to this machine. This if have to will be another troubleshooting I can do separately. It is IIS that I need to have setup correctly.

All help is welcome and appreciated.

 Thanks!

Does it open when you access it by IP address?  If not then your forwarding in your firewall is not correct.  Also, if you do not have static IP for your home router your IP will change eventually and your DNS entry will be invalid.  You should use some type of dynamic DNS service unless you have static IP.

Also, have you opened port 80 in the Windows firewall on your Windows 7 machine?

You may also want to check your binding in IIS 7.  You will want to make sure that port 80 is listening to all available IP's.  Also make sure your Win 7 PC has a static IP to make your port forwarding from your router work.

Hi,
Could you comment on the following?

IIS Bindings
1. Confirm your IIS Host Bindings are *,unassigned, Port 80 OR named as *,yyyXXX.com, Port 80.

DNS Setup
2. Open CMD and type nslookup yyyXXX.com. Does this yield your WAN IP or Local IP?

Port Forwarding
3. On your router, you are port forwarding or NAT'ing port 80 to your Local IP?

Test Firewall Access
4. You can telnet to your webserver on port 80 from your WAN IP.
             telnet yyyXXX.com 80  
         CTRL-X to kill it if it connects.
Disable your firewall if it doesn't connect.

Cheers,

Externally is resolving the site using the WAN IP address but the name. In the register.com I have the right WAN IP address.

internally it resolves no problem using either the private or external IP address.

It is not the IP address i am questioning. It's your DNS setup.

Please confirm your IIS bindings and NSLOOKUP results.

The Site Bindings are:Type http  port 80   IP Address *   hostename empty

the telnet did not work...

 NSLOOKUP the router the internal IP address of the AT&T device is responding to the localhost.

What is your domain address? Let me check this externally.

You can also (FOR TEST PURPOSES) add xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx your.domain.com to your local host file and test.

You domain is not registered properly.

> zulutek.com
Server:  UnKnown
Address:  192.168.1.1

*** No address (A) records available for zulutek.com
>

if http://Wan.Ip.addr resolves then the site is setup properly. You just need to create the A record on your register now.
