IIS7 website http://mysite.lan binding not working? Reply to topic


Hi, im trying to use dragonfly for a intranet website..
There a lot of people with a pc where i live but we all do not have internet..
We would like to use dragonfly on the lan for fun and communicate etc...
The site works ip (im using IIS7 in vista), i created a binding mysite.lan ... but that doesn't work.

Im trying to find how to make that work... did a lot of searching on various sites and google.. but i have no idea what to do... or how to find the answer im looking for.
Do i have to host my own DNS server to make this work?
I would really appreciate it if someone could help me.

You could:
1) run your own dns server and setup all pc into your LAN to use it, create a an authoritative zone for your sitename and forward the rest or directly use ROOT ... update your firewall rules and do not allow your dns to be recursive for anything outside your lan, i have no clue on how do this in windows, I use Bind 9 for this.

2) manually update the "host" file for every local pc.

ps: not IIS issue but a windows related question.

Thanx for the quick response, the second is no option for me... there are a lot ppl coming and going where i live so i would have to keep doing that very often...

Gonna figure out howto do the first option.
Thanx Smile

just get a P2 with 64MiB ram and run it just as DNS server, off course you need to use Linux or Unix for this.

If you run DNS in windows you might be able to give him some good hints. I know nothing in this case.

Guessing that your router is handling DHCP - you should be able to add your own server in the DNS list on the router.
Don't think you can run a DNS server on Vista, but if you do somehow manage, all you should need to do is create a forward lookup zone in DNS with your internal domain name, then add a host (A record) with the name and IP of the server.

You could also setup an external DNS link, which is the way i have managed to setup my webserver, WSUS update server, and my Media server,

All i did was create an account at www.dyndns.org then create a port forwarding rule on my router to forward port 80 requests to my server then configured the router to update the dyndns site with my new IP when my provider changes it.

I have a netgear router so im not sure if all routers have the facility to update the dyndns site, you can also run their piece of software which also updates this.

No people at my house can access my websites inside or outside the LAN
