I have a problem on my web server. I cannot access my website externally but if I access it with the server itself it works. the installed server is MS Server 2003 SP2.
ex: http://localhost or http://computername
On the server itself it works fine but if i access the "http://computername" on other computers through LAN it returns an error: "Connection Interrupted" or "Time out".
Can somebody help me?

This will be a networking/routing/firewall/etc issue not an IIS one.
Make sure you have allowed Port 80 through your firewall.

I found the solution to my problem. It's just a firewall problem. port 80 was blocked. I just add exception to port 80 and it works.
