I am using the iis 6.0 which is behind the router(Linksys).The website opens in the intranet and also open for the people who has the same
ISP but on the other it shows
Failed to connect to the specified host. Possible problems are that the server was not found, the connection timed out, or the connection refused by the host.
I asked my friend to test the http://24.203.xx.xx address but it does not opens gives the above error but the tracert works and ping works.

It sounds like a networking issues. Perhaps your ISP blocks port 80 so that people coming from another ISP cannot access the website? I would recommend you to contact your ISP and ask them for possible reasons for this behavior, because they seem to be
involved in the issue.
