Overview

The new remote administration tool for IIS 7.0 provides end users and administrators with a way to remotely manage IIS 7.0 servers from Windows Vista, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. The tool provides administrators and users with a familiar user interface to manage and configure their servers. A server administrator can perform almost any task that they could while sitting in front
of the server itself and site and application owners can modify and view settings that have been delegated to them by the server administrator.
