We are having issues accessing a website from an external address even though I have modified the Firewall settings & port forwarded the required port to this server.
We have a working site on http://server:801/address
when we try to access via http://publicaddress.com:801/address
... we receive an error in the application page
again if we try to access via the following:
when we try to access via http://192.168.1.1:801/address
... we receive an error in the application page (This is the local address of the server).
I suspect we need to add the bindings to the site to make this available on either the local IP address or the external website address? I have right clicked the site then added these bindings without luck. Is there somewhere else I need to add these?
Just to run through
Server is running 2008r2
Local fqdn & port site working OK
Local IP & port not working
External FQDN & port not working.
The External Address has its A records etc pointing to our servers public IP address & I can confirm the the port through the firewall is working correctly.
