Can't access WorkGroup Viewer from outside LAN

Question asked by Mahir Abrahim on Nov 30, 2007
I just installed SW2007 + WorkGroup Viewer. When I login to the WorkGroup Viewer from outside our local LAN I get the error message below. I can navigate to http://ipaddress/pdmweb just fine, but I can't get any further. Oddly, the WG Viewer/WebPortal works fine locally from within the LAN. With the WebPortal I only had to open port 80. Are there any other FireWall ports that need to be opened with this post-2006 incarnation of WebPortal? Thanks.


Server Error in '/PdmwSearch' Application.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Runtime Error
Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".


!-- Web.Config Configuration File --

configuration
system.web
customErrors mode="Off"/
/system.web
/configuration

Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.

!-- Web.Config Configuration File --

configuration
system.web
customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/
/system.web
/configuration
