    Guide to IIS?


    Does anybody have any good sites or any info on setting up a webserver using IIS and Windows 2000?

    Any information would be a great help.

    If IIS is installed, open http://localhost/IISHelp

    www.iisfaq.com is a good resource

    Thanks, I have IIS installed but can only access it internally.
    Not had much time to look at it, probably something realy stupid that I havent set.

    Thanks

    Did you test your website with IP address? If it works, then your DNS name is not registered properly with your service provider.

    Unhappy


    Someone told me that I should use a router, does this matter if its a single pc?

    I will check the IP when I get home no access to it from work.

    I have tried the system with and without the firewall running, will let you know how I get on with the IP test.

    Thanks

    Sorted it

    Stupid Windows XP firewall! I thought it would be something obvious.

    Anyone got any security suggestions?

    Thanks

    I'm glad you got it going.

    There are lots of sites with security information. Check microsoft for some security tools, www.iisfaq.com is a good site, and search google.
