At the moment i have it by typing localhost, although that took some doing, I am trying to link it up to www.kwebd.co.uk I have got that through dyndns and i think my router is set up correctly, it is forwarding all port 80 requests to my internal ip address. I have never delved into IIS before, so this is probably why i am having problems, previous to this i was using wamp5 server, which worked quite well. I will have a look and see if i can find something similar to that which you mention. Have you any suggestions as to books i could read? Thanks again Kipper Hmm, it might e something to do with adding an IP address for the website (Default?) to listen on. What happens when you request pages at the moment? Is there a URL we can try? You may need to add a host header to IIS if you're accessing it by anything other than IP.
