I had the same problem before and it turned out to be IIS not installed and configured.

ports required for Web Pages usually port 80 TCP.

RDP is Port 3389 TCP.

so can you use telnet <ip address> 3389 or 80 and get a valid connection, on the server, from another computer on the LAN.

Do you have port forward rules/NAT setup inbound to access these ports?
