Is it the default website? Yes, and it is the only website.
Did you configure a hostheader on the site? yes
When you say remotely, do you mean from another machine or from a port remap
from the internet? another machine
How do you connect to it remotely? www.bcsupernet.ca
Does it work from another machine? yes
If you configured a hostheader, does it work using the hostheader? yes
Did you configure a specific IP or 'any available IP?' currently "any
available" but have tried the IP as well.

Thanks for the help !

This is an IIS question, and there's a specific group for that, but let's
take a look at it.

Is it the default website?
Did you configure a hostheader on the site?
When you say remotely, do you mean from another machine or from a port remap
from the internet?
How do you connect to it remotely?
Does it work from another machine?
If you configured a hostheader, does it work using the hostheader?
Did you configure a specific IP or 'any available IP?'

You are welcome, so far.

Because of the host header, you may have to always connect with it internally. If you remove the hostheader, it should work with localhost.
