the link does not explain why the website works locally (presumably still using IUSR) but not remotely. I thnk there is something more in play here.
Did you follow that article to resolve the 403.2 issue recorded in the log entry? The "why" part can wait once you are sure the options in the article do solve the issue, or don't if you hit a more complicated case.
Something "works locally" never has a guarantee to work elsewhere, as different machines are indeed different. Before guessing around (firewall, or other sites), you should focus on the most common causes. Otherwise, Microsoft won't waste time writing the
article in the first place.
