ASP Project Webpage issue (MS Edge) - Can't Reach Page/Refused to connect

Good Evening, I have built an ASP.NET project in Visual Studio 2022. On the Server Machine, the following localhost link works fine in MS Edge: http://localhost:<#####>/<@@@@@@@@@@>.aspx The following full/public link works fine in Internet Explorer (although this not significant as we generally use MS Edge):

However, the problem occurs when trying to open the full/public link in MS Edge i.e. : http://<ServerMachine>:<#####>/<@@@@@@@@@@>.aspx The following error occurs (ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED):

I have hosted the Webpage on Internet Information Services (IIS). Could it be that a setting for the Application Pool or Site needs to be modified to eliminate this problem from MS Edge ? Suggestions would be appreciated. Regards

    As you are using a custom port, most likely it’s blocked on either or both the servers and clients.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Yes - it is a customer Port which I chose myself. If I may ask, why does the App work fine in Internet Explorer, but fails in MS Edge (ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED)?
