I have a server running Windows 2008 R2 with IIS 7.5

I set a new web site up...

I opens on the server no issue but other computers all I get is:

Server Error
403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

What directory are you using to store your website files? I ask because inetpub has the neccessary permissions already there, if you are using a custom folder then you need to basically copy the credentials form the inetpub folder on your c drive, and wwwroot folder benie that.

Did you poke holes in our turn off the Windows Firewall? Need port 80 for web traffic, and by default it's closed.
