IIS 6 unleashed

Expectation levels are high before a new version of an application is about to be released. And it was just so with IIS 6 (Internet Information Services)—Microsoft's suite of Internet applications, integrated at the operating system level. While the FTP, SMTP, and NNTP services are not radically different in this version, the Web server component in IIS6 has a new focus on security and fundamental changes in the way it behaves at its core.

The book shows you how to deploy, tune and troubleshoot IIS 6. Besides unveiling and explaining the new features of IIS 6, it shows how to administer websites, and discusses application pools, the Metabase (the equivalent of the Windows registry), security etc.

You'll learn how to navigate the new architecture, create and configure websites, and use virtual directories for hosting site content. Reading through the chapters you'll get a sense of the increased security, reliability, scalability, performance and manageability of the new product.
