Open IIS Website using Public IP - Port Forwarding

Just Moved In

Please help. The IIS Website works when I open using local IP and names:


The Telus Router Model is "TELUS Wi-Fi Hub".

Internet Plan is TELUS Gigabit Internet (Residential)


I added Port forwarding in the Router
Public Port 80 to Private Port 80 in local IP


The following website shows port 80 is accessible from outside IP
Success: I can see your service on port (80)
Your ISP is not blocking port 80


For testing purpose, I temporarily turned off Firewall in the Router and also in the Windows.

When I open the website using public IP

I get following error:

This site can’t be took too long to respond.

Checking the connection
Checking the proxy and the firewall

You won't be able to access anything you host when connecting using a device on your home network. Take one of your other devices with a VPN or try with your cell on LTE/5G instead of wifi and see if they can connect.
