Hi, I installed WIndows 2000 Advanced Server and i have got IIS installed on the server. I do not have any Firewall installed on my computer. When i try to browse any website through my server i can browse them but when i try to do the same from any other computer which is outside the network i am unable to browse the website. What could be the reason. Any suggestions?

Is there a firewall installed on the network?
While you may not have a firewall on your server, there may be one on the network and preventing outside systems from reaching you.

Is your server's name published to your external DNS records?
If the servers name is not published on a DNS server that is authoritative for the zone you have, outside systems will not find it.

How is your DNS structured?

Are you NATing?

More information is needed to assist with this issue.
