I can't access a web application hosted on a workgroup computer

    I created a web application that works fine if I access it from the
    computer that hosts the application. If I try accessing the web
    application from another computer in the workgroup it doesn't work. Can
    anybody help me with the necessary IIS or permission settings so I can
    get to my web application from any computer in the workgroup.

    Thanks

    Exactly how doesn't it work?

    Is it that you browse to http://localhost/MyApp from another PC in the
    workgroup and the app doesn't appear.

    Or you browse to http://SomePc/MyApp and the app doesn't appear.

    Or you browse to http://SomePc/MyApp and it asks for a login three time
    then quits?

    Can you ping SomePc and get the name to resolve via DNS?

    Is the firewall on SomePc allowing HTTP servicservice?

    If you can surf http://SomePc/MyApp is there an error being generated
    by ASP.NET?
    Can you see that in the event log or set customErrors="off" and or
    tracing on to get a better handle on the problem?

    How you configures IIS depends on what you are trying to do with the
    web application.
