web page on 2008 R2 server

Posted on 2011-10-28

I have a software install that is browser based installed on a new 2008 R2 server. I can open the web site fine on the server itself using the IP or server name. If I try to access the same website from my pc (on a different VLAN, if that matters) by IP - I can open just fine. When I try to open it from my pc using the FQDN of the server, I get cannot display the webpage.

Any idea on why it works fine from the server, but not from my workstation?

Thanks in advance!

    Check your IIS bindings

    What do I need to check in the Bindings?

    I have put in the hostname using the all ip's and with the server ip - still no luck from a workstation.

    This sounds like a DNS issue.  Check to make sure your DNS server has an entry for that host.

    splitting the points. We finally found the issue - it was an authentication issue.

    Thanks for your responses.
