unable to acess ASP .NET website from another computer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi fellows ! 

    i have a website say TestApp1 targetting framework 4.0 which i deployed on IIS 7 

    I can access this website from the system on which i have deployed it but unable to access it from anyother computer over the network 

    when i access http://abc-pc/testapp1 in the server computer it works fine (abc-pc is the server name where website is deployed)

    but when i go to some other system and access the above url it says 'This webpage is not available'

    from the remote system i have ping to the abc-pc using its ip address which shows success....

    any suggesstions?

  • Port 80 is used for http communication with the server and if it's not open you won't be able to browse your website publicly. You need to speak to your network guys to allow this traffic over port 80. Then try again.

  • Hi Fouad Roumieh

    i typed this in cmd

    telnet 192.168.1.14 80

    result is: 'telnet' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file
