URL Query String Not Working

Okay this may be a silly question but my network / web design knowledge is pretty minimal.

I have a web site where I want to display an image that has a GUID query string attached.

When the page is opened using my internal IP address I can see the image but when I use the IP address for the outside world I get the error that Internet Explorer cannot display the web page. If I remove the query string and view using the external IP the image displays perfectly.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Where abouts do I set it? The page is html at the moment but the image links to aspx pages. Do I need to put that code at the beginning of the html doc and change the extension?

its set at the aspx page.

its just a hunch but the problem might also be the cross domain restrictions on the client or server side

Problem may be with your GUID from server, how did you get the GUID in HTML page? did you check that?

Hi there,

I had a further look and couldn't process the image via the IP address so I used a named server that we have for images and hosted the image their. That seemed to work fine.

I will look into this further, I think it is a permissions issue somewhere which I'll have to track down in the future.

Thanks for all your help.
