We recently upgraded from Windows Server 2003 to 2008 R2. During our upgrade we accidentally removed IIS and reinstalled it again and now the site can only be accessed locally and if we try to access it externally we have to use the IP address.
So far we have tried the following:
- Ping the server name my notebook: it is accessible.
- Ping the server name on the box itself: it is also accessible.
- Ping the server using the IP Address locally on the box and on my notebook : it is still accessible.
The other thing is that when we use IP address, the site returns repeated logon screens until you click on cancel.
Here is the error we get when try to access it on my notebook.
Not Authorized: HTTP Error 401. The requested resource requires user authentication.
Many thanks, Sepaka
