SBS 2008 Publishing new internal website, not the defaults

Hi Experts!
A developer has created a web based applicaton.The database is located within SQL 2005 Express and its been configured in IIS 6

On the server if we type the URL http://localhost:5050 (as it has been configured to listen on 5050) the URL works and the http page shows the application / database

On the client machines the various URL's do not work
http://severname:5050
http://servername.domain.local:5050
http://dbname:5050

I noticed that within the SBS Console\Shared Folders and Websites\websites.....only the three default websites are listed. How can I get this app listed in there.
All three default websites work fine - RWW, OWA etc etc
I attach a screen shot of the DB in question within IIS
We only want this database application to work internally and it does not need to be published to the outside world yet.

Thanks in advance
Regards
Rob

The site should have been configured under IIS 7, not 6.   IIS6 is only there for legacy FTP and a few other things

All other sites are done in IIS 7

Not sure I can provide much help then  Don't typically , but just a couple thoughts
have you tried http://serverip:5050/
Have you opened ports on the Windows Firewall for inbound and outbound?

On the client machines the various URL's do not work
http://severname:5050
http://servername.domain.local:5050
http://dbname:5050



how about http://domain.local:5050

you could change the bindings for the "CUTE" website to dbname.domain.local port 80

and add a cname record in your dns
dbname.domain.local  servername.domain.local

also check your dns records
nslookup servername
nslookup servername.domain.local
nslookup dbname

both from the server and from any worstation

The perfect answer...CNAME resolution
Firewall for port 5050 was already allowed and did not want to cange it to 80 as it may have  conflicted with the default SBS workspaces
Thanks
