Internal IIS and DNS
Posted on 2013-01-03
I have a Windows 7 x64 Pro PC running IIS 7.0. The PC has a static IP address. IIS is configured and has an operational test site. The PC is joined to a domain.
The PC is part of a domain, it has an A record in the localdomain Forward Lookup Zones within DNS. It points to the static IP address of the PC.
Since the PC now has IIS setup I assumed that I would be able to open a browser and browse to the IP of the PC and get the test site. Didn't work.
I have created another A record within my .com forward lookup zones and it points to the static IP. that also did not work.
What I want to be able to do is access the test site by going to a URL from a separate, internal PC. Any input would be helpful. Thanks.
