What browser are you using to view your site? If you are using IE is it the same version as your clients?

Without knowing the url, it's difficult to replicate the situation.

Personally I use Chrome.....one client contacted me and said that he tried all browsers and wasn't able to connect to the server.

@Pencil do you have the whole list so I can see it..everytime I do a tracert from my machine I get request timed out.....also does this mean that the problem is not on the local server? Sorry Im asking so many questions....I am not an Network Admin!

The problem is that it's timing out. Where do you see the timouts? Right away, or after a few hops?

This depends on where you see the timeouts.

A larger question would be, who is in charge of your network? They should be notified, & they can troubleshoot further. Even if we knew what was wrong, we can't fix it remotely.

Then likely the problem is within your building. I would suggest power cycling any routers, switches, hubs, or other networking equipment.

Again, you really should have the networking guys present when you are troubleshooting this.

I'm curious what happens when you try a traceroute to a known working source, like google.com?

Question: if my trace-rt dies at hop 13 and the connection never reaches me does that mean that the problem I am experiencing is external?

The hop number alone does not give insight to the issue. It only provides the last known good hop. If the last hop was your isp, then the problem is likely with their equipment, or internal.

If not, you can call your isp & provide to them the information & see if they will help diagnose.

Hey guys,
I have a quick question. I am responsible from up keeping a legacy website for my job and for some reason people can't get to it from outside our local network! With that said, I am totally new to ASP.NET. My question is...is there anything in ASP.NET config files that could keep people from outside my network from getting in? I have looked through the config files and couldn't find anything. Also I have did tracert's and pinged the website. I get request timed out when I pinged. Also when I do I tracert....one of the hops stops short of getting to my location. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!

there are so many reasons why outside people can't get to your site. IIS Could not be configured right, the server you setup the website on is not accessable from outside. There are more, but I can't think of them offhand. As far as from your website itself, unless you have explicitly stated <deny users="*" /> in the <authorization> section of <system.web> then it shouldn't be effecting it.
