Now, the minute you install and start up the IIS 6.0 product on Windows .NET Server, you are hit with the words “security” immediately with a new Wizard. First off, IIS 6.0 had to be installed on my version of Windows .NET Server. It was not running by default (another good thing), and can be installed in the Control Panel, Add/remove programs applet, and then by selecting to add a Windows based component. Once you installed Windows IIS 6.0, then you can launch it from the Administrative tools folder within the Console Panel or the Start menu programs folder.
