I am running into a problem where IIS 7.0 will not connect to its dns name. I can connect to localhost
localhost/myway.configuration

Server name is fmc

i cannot connect to
fmc/
fmc/myway.configuration

I get the 403: forbidden access is denied.

Any ideas as I have had mulitple techs look at it and still unable to repair this. We have verified no issues with dns and the etc\host file has the correct entries in it.

make sure you have have you set up the correct bindings for the hostheader fmc

What 403 error are you getting - look in the iis logs. Look for the subcode 403.x and compair to this list
