Question: How do I setup remote management of an IIS 7 server on Windows Server 2008?
Answer: By default, remote management is turned off. Therefore, you must turn it on before you can use any of its features. Although IIS is available for Vista and other versions of Microsoft Windows, remote management only works on Windows Server. You can install remote management with three easy steps:
1. Install the service called Web Management Service (WMSVC)
2. Turn on remote connections.
3. Set any other configurations you desire, such as ports, IP address and domain settings.
4. Start the WMSVC service. You can also set it to start up automatically at boot.
A full detailed description of each step is available on the Learn IIS website.
