What's New In IIS 6.0: A Practical Administrative Guide (Part 2 of 2)

The first article in this two-part series explored IIS 6.0's new features. This part of the series concentrates on the "hands on" activities to implement and manage those new features. You'll see how to configure IIS 6.0 to leverage Web services extensions, enable ASP.NET processing, and troubleshoot some new IIS 6.0 issues.

he Web service Extensions management console (see Figure 1) is a new feature you'll find in the IIS 6.0 management application. This utility gives you a Control Panel-like way to configure your IIS components. You can allow, prohibit or change the settings for various types of IIS services using this tool. You can also use the Web service Extensions management console to add and edit recognized IIS extensions (ISAPI applications and third-party IIS tools). Finally, you can use it to enable or disable all Web service Extensions. Here's a list of default components you can enable or disable through the Web service Extensions management console:

  • ASP.NET executions
  • ASP executions
  • CGI and ISAPI applications
  • Front Page Server Extensions 2000 and 2002
  • WebDAV support for IIS directories
