Need some help....
Rather new to web services within a co. network - intranet environment.
Looking to expose a small web service to a vendor from our production Intranet server.  Obviously, we can use the service just fine within the network but I need to expose this to the outside world.  How do you go about setting this up.

So far we completed this:

- added a sub-domain called svc.companyname.com
- went into IIS Mgr, right clicked and selected "Add New Site"
- gave it a Site Name, Physical path: set to the directory in wwwroot where the service files reside
- in the bindings gave the host name of the sub-domain above
- clicked okay

Port 80 is currently being used for our main intranet site.  I'm assuming we need to assign a different port number to this new website for the service.

Also, maybe some changes to the firewall and possibly an Internal DNS entry as well.

Right now, with only the steps outlined above, when browsing to this via IE, we arrive back at our Intranet DEFAULT WEBSITE (port 80)

Please assist on where to go from here...
