    I have been asked buy my work to setup a webserver.

    I am using windows server 2003.

    I have added an application server for IIS but thats where my knowledge of server setup stops.

    Just on the setup.
    There is a switch with a static IP address.
    Attached to the switch is 2 computers,
    1 IP phone
    1 Grandstream vopi gateway.

    I am not really sure what i need to do to make the server a real server from an internal point of view and external...ie internet surfable point of view?

    can anyone advise?

    These are from my notes when I've done this. I am showing a basic setup. You can do much more than this, but it would require a complete tutorial to identify everything.

    * Assumed:
    - Windows 2003 Server is installed, and has a static intranet [email protected]
    - Your internet router is set to route port 80 to this box
    - You have addressed any firewall issues along the way
    - Your home page is named "Default.htm"
    - You are not using virtual directories
    - You want static page delivery (no applications / scripts / etc)

    * Application Server Role Setup
    - Start "Configure Your Server Wizard"
    - Select "Application Server" and press "Next"
    - Application Server Option screen
    + select "FrontPage Server Extensions"
    + select "Enable ASP.NET"
    + press "Next", then "Finish"

    * Create web site
    - rt-click on "Web Sites" / new / Web Site
    - Web Site Description screen
    + Description --> <fill in>
    - IP Address & Port screen
    + Enter IP Address --> "All Unassigned"
    + TCP port --> 80
    + Host header --> <leave blank>
    - Web Site Home Directory screen
    + Path --> <folder holding your pages>
    + "Allow anonymous access" --> <allow>
    - Web Site Access Permissions screen
    + "Read" --> select
    + "Run scripts" --> de-select
    + "Execute" --> de-select
    + "Write" --> de-select
    + "Browse" --> de-select
    - rt-click on web site / Permissions
    + add "Everyone" for "Read & Exec" & "List Folder Contents" & "Read"

    * Set security permissions on the www folders
    - Everyone --> read
    - {owner} --> full

    * Create your home page in specified folder, with name "default.htm"

    I hope this helps.
