comment Port Forwarding: Why do my local sites on 80 work but not those on 8080?
Very good point. Originally My PC was not fwding on any port. Then I reset my router to factory settings and, I believe) fwded port 80 exactly the same as I did when it wasnt working, and then it worked. Maybe I will try that again. Now, I am just considering switching my TFS web site from port 8080 to 80. Who knows what else I have to chg when I mess with the default...

Check out the screen shot I added showing my firewall settings. I think I disabled everything.

Answers to your questions: (1) I did not set up the router to map port 8080 to 80. The web site is configured in IIS to use port 8080. (This is a TFS site, the setup program configured it this way.) (2) From another computer in my home using the local network IP address that starts with 192h, I can successfully access web site on the web server that are running on port 80. I can also access the TFS web site running on port 8080. Using an external IP address of my router, I can only access the web site on port 80.

I have, and it is down for everyone. I don't know what it could be. Check out my edited post. It shows my router configuration fwding both 80 and 8080. Also, the firewall is turned off on the web server. I'm, at a loss.

I take my first comment back. 192.168.1.106:8080/tfs/web works from the box that is 192.168.1.106, but doesnt work from another pc on my Home Network unless I turn off the firewall on 192.168.1.106. How do I change my firewall settings to allow traffic on 8080 but otherwise be on? I see where you allow exceptions on a by program basic. What would the program be? Is there an exe for IIS that I need to point to to grant the exception?

comment New PC, Keyboard and OS and I can't do a Screen Image Capture
Hitting the F-Lock + PrtScrn button seem to do the trick. Funny. I dont think I ever saw a keyboard with F-Lock on it. Ty!
