I need to set up a Web application on a server running Windows 2000, IIS5 (IIS not running at
the moment) and MS Proxy Server 2.0. The server is multi-homed behind a firewall. I do not want
anyone on the outside to be able to see this Web app. Is this possible and how do I do it?
To edit this:
- Launch the Internet Services Manager from the Administrative Tools folder.
- View the properties for your application's virtual directory, and select the Directory Security
- Then, click the Edit button underneath IP Address And Domain Name restrictions, and configure it so that only the IP addresses on your LAN have access.
Also, you mention that the system is multi-homed behind a firewall. If you need to block all
access to the entire server, you can configure the firewall not to allow outside requests destined
for port 80 or 443. Configuring both of these mechanisms will offer you belt-and-suspenders
