It's no problem when browse it in my localhost. However, whenever I tried to browse it from another computer I couldn't find my server.
All my firewall is turned off.
Thanks for help!

a) can you browse via the server ip ?
b) what do you see in IE? page cannot be displayed or ?
c) can you telnet serverip 80 ? to check if the http port is working?
d) anything else in between ? router/proxy?

a) I can't browse via the server IP and server name as well
b) FF says: Cannot find my address http:/servername/mysite
c) My port is 80
d) There is nothing between...

1. Do you set proxy in the "another computer"?
2. Can the "another computer" access internet?
3. How many network card does the server using?
4. can you access the server shared folder? like \\ServerIPAddreww\SharedFolder

1. I don't set proxy
2. It always connects to internet.
3. I use 1 network card
4. I can access my shared folders in the server.

I have the same problem.
Do I have to configure IIS to browse the server from another computer or it's configure by default?

Allow port 80 on the windows firewall. To test remote connection
telnet x.x.x.x 80 (x.x.x.x replace with IIS server address)

Hi. I had the same problems, trying to connect to my web site from another pc.
First of all: You should publish your web site from Visual Studio, making, for example:
http://localhost/BAK/ as Target location. BAK - is folder of your site, so you should connect to your site, using
http://192.168.x.x/BAK/Default.aspx (FOR Example)
The second thing: I had the same problem, until I added a rule to my Windows Firewall, that allows connections on 80 port. After this step I was able to see my web site from another computer.
I hope, that it would help you.

Vista cannot recognize the command telnet x.x.x.x 80
My problem haven't been solved yet.

The telnet client isn't installed by default on Vista. You can copy the EXE from a XP machine (c:\windows\system32) is the path.

Or get the wfetch to test.
