IIS 5.0

By hydveda ·
Hi,
I have got windows2000 on my computer connected to internet through an ADSL line.I have both webserver and mail server on the windows2000 server. I registered a domain name to host my windows2000 computer and i pointed my server's Ip in the DNS A record and gave my domain name in the MX record.
How ever my mail server is working fine but my IIS dosent seem to work. all the services of IIS are running and if i try to open the website within intranet then the website opens and if i try to access the website from internet(from the computer at my home) then i am unable to access the website.
I am using a third party mail server and i didnt see any conflict between my mail server and IIS. I stopped all the serives of mail serverto see whether my website would work or not.. But no luck even then.
My server is a standalone windows 2000 server. i tried both ALL UNASSIGNED and My IP in IIS website IP field but still that wont work.
IS there anything else i need to configure??
Can anyone please help me out?

regards.

Are you using a DSL router, or do you have a firewall installed? You need to configure the firewall to allow traffic on port 80, and your DSL router needs to pass port 80 traffic to your server.

You don't say that you have a www entry in DNS. Can you get to the webserver/website from home if you put in the IP address rather than the URL? If so you definitely have a name resolution problem. Put a www entry in your DNS server to the IP address of the website.

I already have a mail server on the same IP and i entered the MX record. Suppose my website name is xyz.org then in the A Record i entered the IP of my system for xyz.org and for MX record i entered the hostname as xyz.org. Is that where i went wrong???? Can i enter the same domain name for both the A name and MX record???
Any Suggestions??

Regards.

To follow up on my answer above. Your A entry should be for the host name of the computer to the IP address. You say you already have an MX alias or CNAME to the same address. You also need a WWW entry to that address, or the the fqdn of the server. Choose create a new alias, enter www, and the IP or FQDN of the server and try your web browser again.
