IIS – Internet Information Services tutorials

  • Most network environment have web server these days. IIS is an application server part and it include following components.

  • BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service) Server extension

  • FTP (File Transfer Protocol) Server

  • FrontPage Server Extension

  • Internet Printing

  • World Wide Web Server

  • NNTP (Network News Transfer Protocol)

  • SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol)

  • For Windows Server 2003, IIS version is 6.0 (Internet Information Services)

  • This is not installed by default.

  • To install it, go to Control Panel – Add/Remove Program – Windows Components – Application Server – Select IIS

  • When you install IIS, a default web site is automatically created

  • By default, all web content is stored in the \inetpub\wwwroot directory

  • A virtual directory is used to make content available through web site.


IIS Logon Authentication

  • Most public websites allow users to anonymously access content of pages. When a user anonymously accesses an IIS server in browser, the internet guest account (IUSR_ComputerName) determines the level and type of access. By default, internet guest account grants the user the right to logon locally.

  • Access to IIS can be controlled using following 5 authentication method.


    1. Anonymous Authentication:– allows user to access resources without being prompted for username and password information. IIS logs users using internet guest or web application guest account

    2. Integrated Windows Authentication:- uses standard windows security to validate a user’s identity. User are not prompted for logon information. Instead the windows logon credential are related to the server in an encrypted format that does not require the use of SSL. Only IE browser support this authentication method.

    3. Digest Authentication:– uses HTTP 1.1 digest authentication to securely transmit user credential. The user must have valid domain account and IIS server must be member of an Active Directory domain

    4. Basic Authentication:– Provides the most basic authentication control, users are prompted for username and password, which is passed to the IIS server as clear text unless SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is configured and used.

    5. .NET Passport Authentication:- uses .NET passport authentication to validate user access and credential. When validating user the server checks for passport authentication and if exist allow. If not valid, the user is redirected to the passport logon service.
