Blocking external access to a WebFolder and stopping IIS reacting to internal server name

Hi

I have a website installed on a local server (attached).

I am trying to restrict access to the Admin folder using the ip address and domain restrictions option but when i set it up.

Default deny and allow 192.168.1.0/24 is denys for everyone.

Also i need to stop the website responding to the local server name and only the external name so that the ssl works correctly.

Can i just stop the server responding to the local name rather than having to put a forward in?

thanks

Can you post the site's bindings?  The image posted does not provide enough useful info.

My guess is the site binding is using the wildcard configuration for the IP binding, which allows IIS to respond to any http request that hits the server.  What you need to do is to choose the specific IP that the server is to answer on when a user requests a page.

Then you need to edit the IP Address and Domain Restrictions feature associated with the virtual Application and set the Feature Settings to by default Deny access for unspecified clients, then add a specific Allow rule for the IP address range you mentioned above.

Is this server directly visible from the Internet or does it sit behind a NAT'ed Public IP or a load balancer?

Fantastic, thanks.

I changed the site to be just on the ipv4 rather than * and the restrictions have started working and i can no longer browse on the local server name.

thank you
