I'm using VirtualBox. I had two Windows Server 2003 PCs (SRV1 and SRV2), one for DNS(SRV1) and one as a webserver (IIS)(SRV2).

I put some HTML page under the default website. But when browsing I'm not getting the exact page.

  • I configured DNS correctly – it is resolving the name correctly.
  • I changed the network adapter to bridged mode
  • I can ping each other with the IP address but can't ping the website (when I ping like ping www.softech.com), I'm not getting the webpage (www.softech.com)
  • I'm not using a public address, just a simple private address.

To be clearer, the webpage resides in SRV1 and there is a DNS entry in my DNS server (SRV1) which points to SRV1. SRV1's(DNS) IP address is 192.168.54.51 and SRV2(webserver) is 192.168.54.52

what is the output of the command ping www.softech.com, and what is the output of the command nslookup www.softech.com? Are you able to access the web page locally from the IIS admin console? –  Ansgar Wiechers Sep 17 '12 at 19:14
    
for nslookup its showing like this name:www.softech.com and address:192.168.54.52 and when trying ping shows like pinging www.softech.com[192.168.54.52] with 32 bytes of data:request timed out showing 3 times –  sony55 Sep 18 '12 at 4:49

Please update your question with the exact output of the commands ping www.softech.com and ping 192.168.54.52. Copy/paste the output, don't rephrase it. –  Ansgar Wiechers Sep 18 '12 at 10:09
