OK. This is driving me insane. I'm new to IIS7. I just developed a web site in Expressions Web 4, sent it over to my web server, added the site to IIS 7, and much to my chagrin, cannot view it at localhost or at www.myurl.com
. How annoying is that?
1. It shouldn't be a firewall issue. I CAN get the default IIS 7 web pg to come up internally AND externally if I don't have my web site registered in IIS 7.
, both by using my URL or localhost.
2. I'm using Anonymous Authorization for starters, what I really want is Basic Auth and HTTPS.
3. The Application Pool Identity DOES have permissions on my web site folder, as does IUSR.
4. the IIS default site's bindings are on HTTP, all unassigned.
5. My site's bindings are on HTTP, my internal ip address (192.168.5.5 for example), www.myurl.com
6. The web server is running on Windows 7 Ultimate sp1, as VM on a Windows 2008 R2 server sp1. The actual NIC address (the physical nic in the box) used for that VLAN is 192.168.5.1
7. As I said, it shouldn't be firewall issue. I have packet filter rules allowing all HTTP to virtual web server @ 192.168.5.5, and appropriate masquerading rules.
8. It's not the pg itself. If I go to the folder physically and double click the pg I can view it just fine.
Oh, when I say I can't access the page internally or externally, this is what I mean: It just hangs there in the browser waiting for some type of response from the server. Nothing. I've looked in the firewall log, and the packets are getting routed to the correct machine. And Windows Firewall is disabled on the web server. It's just IIS settings which are messed up, I think.
Any ideas? I've wasted hours on this.
