Hi there, Ok i think i have done what you suggested. I edited the bindings and set the ip to my computers internal ip address set by the router, and the host to kwebd.co.uk When i click on it it goes to the right ip address, but it still doesn't seem to be communicating with the IIS program. Maybe it is still to do with the router? I will check it out. Is there a special name to give the protocol in the port forwarding or just any old name will do? I have still to check the logs in the iis. Need to try and find them first. Thankyou so much for your help so far kipper -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Ben Joyce Sent: 29 December 2007 19:09 To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [Bulk] Re: [thelist] How do i set up IIS7.0 with a router? I've not used IIS7 myself.. though I have someexperience of IIS6 - I can't imagine it has changed much. >From what I can remember in the properties of "Default Web Site" (if that is the one you're using) you will need to modify the settings on the "Website" tab and add your host header and external IP. That might be all you need to do. It is also worth checking your IIS logs to see if there is any activity from your requests made via http://www.kwebd.co.uk Can't help with any book suggestions I'm afraid; all you need to know about IIS Admin can be found on the web :) Check out http://www.iisadmin.co.uk/ Ben On 12/29/07, Kevin Timmins <kipper_timmins at yahoo.co.uk> wrote: > 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?
