    connecting to web site using iis


    Greetings

    Recently loaded iis 5.1 on my home computer; tested the web site and ftp from home computer...all is well.

    How do I get someone on the internet to connect using ip address? Can I use the same address that I retrieved from ipconfig? I get the below info

    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix:
    Autoconfiguration IP Address: 169.254.200.117
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0
    Default Gateway:

    PPP adapter SBC Yahoo! DSL:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix:
    IP Address: 65.65.114.142
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.255
    Default Gateway: 65.65.114.142

    I had someone type http://169.254.200.117/default.aspx and could not connect. I have no firewall enabled.

    Thank you for your assistance.
