unable access to internal iis web site from outside

    Question

  • Hello all ,

    i installed a website in IIS 7  on server win 2008 .
    the web site is an application  called tasks under the Default web site . i created a  self-signed certificated

    the server ip is 10.0.0.2. the application name is tasks
    so now from internal network i go to : http://10.0.0.2/tasks or https://10.0.0.2/tasks
    and the site works.
    now i want to access from oputside the network, so in the firewall (fortigate 80) which ip address is : 200.200.200.200  i configured port forward
    from 8585 to 10.0.0.2 in 443. so all income traffic to the firewall in port 8585 will be forward to the web server in port 443
    now , i tried to go to : https://200.200.200.200:8585 and the certification warning poped up, i confirmed it and then got the message : the site under construction .
    i realized that i need to use http redirect :
    so i configured in the default web site :
     redirect request to this destination: /tasks
     only reditrect requests  to the content in this directory : marked

    now from internal network i go to : http://10.0.0.2 or https://10.0.0.2
    and the site works.

    from outside: https://200.200.200.200:4343  i get the certificate warning but then the erro message: the page cannot be displayed.
    what is wrong here ?
    need your help with this issue
