Hi and thanks in advance,
I have a Win 2k8 R2 standard system running IIS 7. The System is being used as a
standalone webserver that runs a web application that can be assessed externally.
For example, When people go to http://Test.com
they are forwarded to the wan ip
instead of http://Test.com/Timecard/Main.asp
I am using networkwork solutions to host the domain name and the only other option
they have is to mask the wan ip. But when I do that I am, unable to access the site but
when I remove masking, I can access the site again.
I verified that DNS name Test.com points to the wan IP. My problem is tht I am missing
a coulpe of basic steps and would like suggestions about how to access the webapp by dns name not wan ip
Do I need to enable DNS and make the server a standalone domain controler?
Do I need to modify the router config? Right now all request on 80 and 443 are forwarded to the webapp server lisiting port.
Do I need to provide my ISP with the dns info I setup with network solutions?
