Setup: I have a site on my Microsoft 2012 R2 server that is running IIS
Issue: I can access the site from the servers browser by typing in "site.com" and the ip, 192.168.10.5. I cannot access the site from another device on the network via IP or site.com.
What I Have Tried:
I am having some trouble getting a brand new Microsoft 2012 R2 Server up and running. I have installed IIS and DNS. I created a new site and added the following bindings:
Type Ip Port Host Name http All Unassigned 80 site.com http 192.168.10.5 80 site.com http 192.168.10.5 80
Right now I have nothing in my host file. I have tried a few entries in there with no success, so for now I have removed them.
My DNS Forward Lookup Zone is named, site.com.
I have two A Hosts:
Host FQDN IP (same as parent folder) site.com 192.168.10.5 www www.site.com 192.168.10.5
As far as my firewall goes, I added a new Inbound Rule named "site". It is a port rule on TCP, allowing port 80. I selected "Allow the connection" on the Actions page, and the profile applies to Domain, Private, and Public.
I have also checked World Wide Web Services (HTTP Traffic-In) and it is enabled.
I cannot ping the device I am testing with from the server in command prompt. I also cannot ping the server from the device I am testing with.
Whenever I try to access the site, it just sits there loading until it times out. I have checked the pfirewall.log and it is empty. Also the C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles* are not saving anything from the device I am testing with.
I think it is worth mentioning that at one point I was able to connect to the site from inside the network via IP. I am not really sure what happened that is preventing me from accessing it now. As of now if i run
telnet 192.168.10.5 80
It just sits there and eventually says
Could not open connection to the host, on port 80: Connection failed
Any ideas? Thanks!
