what is your network setup like? DMZ? DNS?

basically you will need a public dns entry to resolve test2 to some FQDN and external traffic will have to be allowed in. Thats about it.

you would add it with whatever registrar your domain is registered with.

It would be an A record. I can't tell you what you are putting in there because you used test2 as your server name and didn't specify your domain name. But it would be something like test2.domainname.com and the IP address would be the IP address of your server.

you would either need to type it in the same way you do internally. Or you can setup IIS Host Header and/or redirect.

The URL I'm talking about is what I use on the LAN,

When I type in the external URL it brings me to the index page in the root folder....  How do I get from here to the login page ...

Does that make sense
