I have a IIS 8 on a windows server 8 that currently has its firewall shutdown. I am trying to open up for other computers to access the website that this IIS is running. I can access it locally. I can ping the server remotely but when I try to access the website on the server I get a "No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it".

I have seen articles on the internet for a "enable remote connections" but have failed to find that setting.

What am I missing?

Here are my current site bindings: enter image description here

  • Can you a screenshot of the bindings you've used? You need to make sure you've bound the Website to listen on your external IP address. – a-h Jun 9 '15 at 15:06
