IIS - Change IP address - forbidden access

Hi,

I am hosting several sites on IIS 7.5 on Server 2008 R2.

The server has a local IP address - 192.168.0.2. All port forwarding goes through the router and all works fine.

I have a license file which is bound to our external IP address, meaning (i think) I need to change the bindings for each website so they are all  using the external IP.

I have gone to the network adapeter properties and added the second IP address.

The problem is, when I change the IP address from the internal to external IP in the bindings, I get the following error -

403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.

You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.
Any ideas on this would be very apreciated!

Thanks

We should bind the license to the internal ip. It needs to be bound to something that the local adapters only. For servers, using MAC or IP of a local adapter is pretty much the same. If you need to replace the adapter or machine due to hardware failure, the IP address can be re-used by new hardware, but the MAC is adapter specific. But most adapters allow you to change the MAC address too, so it is really does not matter.
