I have created an asp.net web project and deployed it in my pc with the virtual directory set to websetup1. How should i access my website? When i type my ip add in the browser, it will display my router configuration page instead. Should i include virtual directory in my url so it will bring me to my website insted of my router configuration page? If this is the case how should i include virtual diretory in my url?

my virtual directory is fp. It is working fine when i type "localhost/fp" in my local pc .. but i have no idea why i cant access it from other pc by typing "my-ip-address/fp". Any idea what i have miss out? Should i configure my security setting?

Right Click on "My Computer" and to Go Properties --> ComputerName, in the Full Computer Name : Tell me what is there

My full computer name is "d3ric3-913b8755."

oh ya, i am getting "404 Not Found" message when i tried to access my website from other pc.

I had also turned off my windows firewall as well. Hope these help.

Yes! it is working... thanks =) but why i cant access it with my ip address?

I am trying to access it through pc in my same network and also pc out of my network. It is working when i typed which is the private network but when it is access from other network then the problem arised.

i guess Ping d3ric3-913b8755 is only return positive result for pc in the same network which is true for my situation with 0 lossess.

Now this mean that the PC in other Network have no access to your private Network. So the Problem here is not your Application , the other PC's dont have access to your Private network.

Please Talk to your Network guys about this Issue. if they can ping it from outsite Network , then your problem will be solved
