IIS6 Can access via localhost but cannot access via IP Address


I have just deployed my website in IIS6 (Windows Server 2003) and have a problem:

- Can access with http://localhost/

- Cannot access via IP Address ( - is my IP)

- Cannot access via PC's name (http://hciss/ - is my PC's name).

I want to access my website from another PC in my LAN network. How to resolve this problem?

Coung, check to see if you have port 80 open on the firewall of your machine. That would be the most common problem if you can't see it outside of localhost. Quick way to test would be to disable the firewall period, once you know it's working you can enable it and keep only port 80 or whatever other port you might be using as your webserver.
