    Question Web.Config Auth and IIS Auth problem

    Hey, I've encountered an odd scenario. My domain is visible within the lan (server is within lan) but not from the wan. Yes, port 80 is open. What setting do I need to make for authentication in web.config, and which authentications do I enable/disable in IIS for the domain, so that everybody can see it? I am not using forms auth, or windows auth.

    Well, how are you trying to browse it over the WAN? What is your external IP address?

    If you can't "see" the site, meaning you can't hit it at all from the wan side of the world, all the web.config voodoo will not make any difference.

    Note I'm presuming that you actually can't get to the site, you might want to tell us exactly how it isn't working and we can probably help you better.

    heh. stupidity rules. The problem was based off code flow where a cookie decision was being made. I had the cookie, the outside viewer did not. That execution path created an error.

    So...solved.
