Our website is running on our LOCAL server (Windows Server 2012R2).

It also is running on machines connected in or connected to our local network.

However, IT IS NOT RUNNING ON MACHINES running on other networks (error 404) WHY???

we verfied that:

  1. Anyone can ping our website and get a response.

However, we can NOT run our website.

For example:

C:\Users ... can ping our website.

  1. Our server's firewall allows outside users to visit our website.

However, we cannot connect to the server's database from our development machine.

WHY???

Windows Server 2012
