    Guys. I need some help with IIS v5.1 that I've got installed on my WinXP Pro box. I'm trying to host a small bunch of web pages from my PC but somehow, I can't seem to allow other people to access those pages that I'm trying to host. I've got an ADSL line and assuming that I do take the trouble to inform the people trying to access my web server of my current IP address, how do I go about configuring IIS? Thanks.

    Hmm make sure that the service is on, and that if you you have a router, that port 80 is forwarded to your pc. other than that, not sure, I only use IIS6 in 2003.

    IIS Admin is automatically started and there are no routers.

    Your ISP might be blocking port 80, and/or do you have your firewall configured to open port 80?

    Welcome to DSL/Cable Webserver! Here you will find all the information you need to setup and maintain your own webserver at home or office on your DSL or Cable connection. If you already have DSL or a Cable modem, you already have most of the necessary equipment; all you need to do is set it up.

    Check to see if you have a static IP from your ISP. If not you will need to get a domain name. I have used the above information with good results.
