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.
