I am aware of this, This is the whole reason I purchased the 7 ip addresses and pointed the websites to them.
I just want to deal with one website first (for a test) so I pointed all of the sites to 1 ip and took one site and gave it its own ip.
When I give the website its own ip address I get rerouted to the default windows under construction page (before I ever implement ssl) Have not even touched the ssl part yet. Just trying to set up the multiple ip addresses.
The site is going to the inetpub folder like default website.
IIS is not realizing that the ip address is suppost to go to the website that I set up
I read an article about iis binding to all ip addresses so I used httpcfg set iplisten and the problem is still not fixed.
I am about lost on this one now.
Any help would be great! I do not have much longer to get this thing done.
its odd,,, after I changed all domains to 1 specific ip address instead of using all unassigned, everything seemed to work fine,,, after a day or two I realized the server was doing hokey stuff. the www host headers would stop working randomly.
Some websites would let me go through using www and some would not. the websites that would quit working would still work fine just typeing http://domain.com
I tried enabling socket pooling with adsutil and turning on iplisten with httpcfg and that did not help.
So for now I turned iplisten back off disabled socket pooling and changed all of the sites back to all unasigned.
ok all of the websites are pointed to a main ip address and using host headers.
I took one website and pointed it to its own ip address and took out the host headers. modified dns to have the host and cname for www point to the new ip address,,, dns is on same machine and it listens on all ip addresses for dns queries.
Tried this with two or three sites... all have the same affect. I can not get the www to work.
I can change the cname to other ip addresses and I can tell imediatly that it has been changed but the www does not work, just goes to orig ip address,,, I do not know if it is a dns prob or a iis prob now...
ok here was the problem work around,,, I do not know why this is happening but the cname alias will not work,,, I can create a www alias and it goes to the default ip address,, the only reason I can think of is that it is resolving the server1.domain.com to the ip address I have set up with my registar...
So i deleted the alias and created a second host and named it www and everything worked fine...
