I have installed new windows server 2008 R2 standard edition and on that installed IIS7 which is by default, also configured a web site on port 81 say OT.com have local ip address 192.168.0.1
The website works on server machine, but not accessible from other machine which i tried to access the URL by typing as follows
http://192.168.0.1:81/, which is not accessible from other machines.
Also, hv tried pinging 192.168.0.1 from LAN network machines , comes "request time out"
Need some help on the above problem

I suggest you look at http://forums.iis.net/t/1180228.aspx thread
and suggestions then look at the video by Scott Forsyth.
Most of your problems are basic networking and IIS Bindings issues.
The video covers examples that should make things clear.

Thank you very much for your response.I have gone through this video and followed the steps, but still i cant able to access the website from other machine which is not a part of the Windows server2008 DC but on same Network (LAN) , but access throught
static ip address as http://192.168.0.1
My Binding for the site is as follows
type: http, Ipaddress:192.168.0.1, port:80, host name: nothing
i have created the new rule in the firewall for the inbound traffic to allow the traffic to flow on port 80 , but still it doesnt work
Also as said earlier
I cannot ping the server ip address from client machine

Most of your problems are basic networking and settings use of the Router use of static IP adresses and Host Name.
The only IIS Server change is the Bindings.
The first item to change is Host Name from "Nothing" to something logicial like Machine-Name.
The Host Name is how to find http:// your_server out of the many server(s) that may be present.
The second item to change is the IP Addess the IP Address 192.168.0.1 at port 80
is reserved for many Router as the Administration Web Page and can not be used this way.
The third item is change the Binding to the "Wild Card" which is "*" instead of the 192.168.0.1 .
After you have changed Network Adapter settings and Router Settings you will be assigned
an IP address from the Router as part of DNS operations.
The fourth item to change is the Network Adapter settings for Vista Windows 7 Windows 2008
you can use the Control Panel Network Settings and use properties by selecting
the Network Adapter to use "Wired" "Wireless" and change the IP Address to use IP Address
of the Router or SSID for Wireless Adapter and the type of encryption or security.
The help and diagnostics in the Network Settings section can be used to get the task done.
The fifth item is changing the Router settings at the Administration page
using the Router IP address 192.168.0.1 and logon with your Router Password.
The details for using the Router are in the Manual or Guide in the Router or at the Support site.
General Note: Using IP Adresse(s) in the Private range 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 will not be
usable at the Router through NAT to the internet for public use to find your server.

I suggest you look at this http://forums.iis.net/t/1176578.aspx thread
you should remove the static IP Address at 192.168.0.1 it is commonly used by Routers
for Changing settings on the Router.
You can change the IIS Server Binding to IP Address "*" which is un-assigned.
Currenlty your Router can not assign IP Address(s) to your machine.
If you read the thread in the link you need to check Network Adapter settings and Windows Services.
