SSL is in no way tied to a single port value; in fact, as a protocol, it can be used over any transport medium, as long as that medium provides a bidirectional stream for arbitrary bytes. In a Web context, you can use any port other than 443, provided that you specify it in the URL: https://www.example.com:7342/foobar.html Note that there are some networks ...

You have 7.5.7600.16385. 6.1 Refers to your version of Windows and 7 refers to a generic version. It's not 6 or 8, but rather 7. Of your IIS 7, you're running the 7.5.7600.16385 version. You would most likely need to upgrade to Server 2012 to run IIS8. Below is a chart of the different OS Versions and their supporting IIS version. Windows XP - IIS 5.1 ...

The IIS feature set in Home Premium is not the same as the IIS feature set in Pro. So they are missing because you're using Home Premium. If you want domain-related and other advanced features for IIS, then you need a more advanced version of Windows (i.e.: Pro, or Server). For a comparison list of available IIS features per Windows 7/2008 version, see ...

I ran into this same issue. Rather than re-create all permissions though, just had to re-add WEBSERVER\Users with read permissions - it seems that sharing the folder maybe removed that one?

I'm pretty sure the firewall doesn't block/inspect the localhost/loopback address (127.0.0.1) because it's your computer. So since the target and source are the same, there's really nothing to firewall. When you enabled port 81, or fully disable the firewall could you then access the 2nd site? If not, you may have an IIS configuration problem, and not a ...

The Default Website is what its name says, a convenience website that is created when IIS is installed. It can be deleted and replaced by new websites, but its advantage is that it will work "out-of-the-box" with all definitions and permissions already taken care of. Getting the folder and file permissions right is perhaps the biggest headache when creating ...

Most likely your ISP is blocking port 80 inbound since they don't want you running web servers on a home connection. Try forwarding another port (like 8888) on the public side to port 80 on the local side and see if that works. If it does, that's your problem. And really, there isn't much of a workaround other than calling your ISP to ask to be unblocked ...

IIS is available on Windows 7 Professional and Ultimate (and maybe Enterprise too). It will support unlimited sites and users.

This commonly occurs when port 80 is being used by something else. If this is a dev box, do you also have Apache or Skype installed? These are a common culprit. You can check if port 80 is in use by running netstat -ab|find "80" in an elevated command prompt. This may take a minute or two to run depending on what network activity is occurring on your PC.

A bit different from Mohammad's solution: Run -> appwiz.cpl -> Turn windows features on or off -> Check "Windows Process Activation Service" That's all. It solved my problem.

Each virtual machine behaves exactly the same as a real physical computer on a network, so the host should be referred-to by its IP address, not by the name localhost. If you do not know the host's IP address, enter ipconfig in a command-prompt (cmd). It will be in the entry next to the adapter. The adapter itself depends on the network configuration used ...

Sure it can. Any software with vulnerabilities can be used as a back door. However, most hackers won't look specifically for IIS because it's not very big of a target. They'd much rather go for what tons and tons of people will use in their normal day because it's just easier. So long as you keep your software up-to-date and your files backed up and ...

Appdata is used for per user configuration and data stores, to achieve a degree of user isolation.
