This application helps us to manage computers that work with an Internet or Intranet server with the objective of being able to publish web pages locally or remotely. IIS will offer us access to administrate ASP.NET, PHP or Pearl securely. The services that it includes are FTP, FTPS, SMPT, NNTP and HTTP/HTTPS.
To access the work server that we want to manage, we'll have to indicate the server's name, as well as our user name and password. Once we are logged in, we will be able to manage our IIS freely.
The program is also part of the Microsoft Web Platform Installer that includes, apart from IIS, Visual Web Developer Express, SQL Server Express, Microsoft .NET Framework and the Silverlight tools for Visual Studio.
