Hi,

We have a .net application which we want to deploy on a windows server 2008 with a static IP. This is a test  server. (IIS7)
We will deploy 3 web applications on this server.

If we have to access it through the server ip how can we do it?

for ex. 11.111.11.11/WebApp1
       11.111.11.11/WebApp2

Thanks

Rowternet,
Are you asking how to access the server to deploy from visual studio?
Or are you asking how to configure them as applications in IIS?

Thanks,
Dustin

dusion,

I can deploy the application on IIS.
Instead of using domain name, i have to use ip to access this application. How to do this?

Thanks

You should just be able to type the ip/approot into your address bar, you may need to prepend http.

So:
http://11.111.11.11/WebApp1

Just make sure that you configured the default website to use the ip address, and also configured them as applications in IIS.

Is this what you needed or am I still misunderstanding you?

Hope this helps,
Dustin

dusion,

I tried it. It does not work that way.
when i try http://11.111.11.11/Webappp1, it takes me to a page showing IIS7.

Thanks

It sounds like you don't have the sites configured properly in IIS. I pulled these steps from a tech net article. The full article is here.

Open IIS Manager. For information about opening IIS Manager, see Open IIS Manager (IIS 7).
In the Connections pane, expand the Sites node.
Right-click the site for which you want to create an application, and click Add Application.
In the Alias text box, type a value for the application URL, such as marketing. This value is used to access the application in a URL.
Click Select if you want to select a different application pool than the one listed in the Application pool box. In the Select Application Pool dialog box, select an application pool from the Application pool list and then click OK.
In the Physical path text box, type the physical path of the application's folder, or click the browse button (...) to navigate the file system to find the folder.
Optionally, click Connect as to specify credentials that have permission to access the physical path. If you do not use specific credentials, select the Application user (pass-through authentication) option on the Connect As dialog box.
Optionally, click Test Settings to verify the settings that you specified for the application.
Click OK.

Now you should be able to view the site through http://{IP Address or servername}/{Alias of application}

Then just do this for the other two applications.

Hope this helps,
Dustin
