Access intranet from home?

Postby dannygoor » Thu Sep 14, 2006 6:29 pm

I am running SBS 2003 with IIS,
I can access it fine from home,, I can log into the remote web worlplace check email and use remote desktop.

I have a simple problem,
my intranet which defaults to http://companyweb/default.aspx works fine locally,, however,, being that it is not a public domain,, I can't access it from the internet. I have a public domain which is: forward to my IIS server.

how can I be able to access the intranet from home???

You can use a Service like to get a DNS Alias for your local home network. Most Routers have inbuild support for automatic update when the IP changes.

If you are behind a router, you would also need to forward Port 80 to your Win2003 Server.

Accessing you IIS intranet site out side the network.

Usally bcoz of the following thing you cant access Intrannet site out side of the LAN.

1. DNAT - Destination NAT
2. Behind the Firewall / Router.
3. Dynamic IP from ISP .

Bcoz of the these three basic things you cannot access out side the intranet .

1. Check the router settings and allow the Port in which IIS running.

2. If your public ip frequently changing then register with DYNDNS and add the setting to the router by this way you can get a fixed name by the help of Dynamic DNS service it will update to the site . And the name should be remails.
