Access Cesium project on internet using IIS7?


Needs some help. I want to run my Cesium project on my home computer and access it from the internet. I am able to port forward and have access to the default website in the LAN and on the WAN. The problem seems to be with port assignment. When port 8080 is set in IIS7 then I can’t start the node server.js.

Any help appreciated.


Hi Dee,

There’s actually no need to use IIS in your case. You can just run ‘npm start --public’ to run the included server as a publicly available server that can be accessed by other machines. If you really still want to use forwarding, you can create a simple Virtual Directory that points to your app. The Node server is completely optional in Cesium so it can be hosted directly by IIS.

Hope that helps,
