It is used primarily on Linux and Unix OS's, but that is a totally other topic.

You said that you wanted to know about IIS. IIS was created by Windows. It was implemented in the Window NT 3.51 kernel(A Kernel is the core group of programs that make up an operating system). IIS was created as a network file and application server that would transmit information by using HTTP or the internet. For most people IIS is a means of getting a web page up and running without having to go through to many steps or know confusing codes or directories.

IIS comes as a standard or add on program for every Window OS from 95 through Vista and Server 2008. If you want to get and install IIS on an XP computer all that you have to do is input the CD into your drive and then click on Install optional Windows components. There will be a box that appears and you can then choose which apps you want to install. From here you click on the check box next to Internet Information Server(IIS), and any other components that you would like to install. Then you click on next and the install wizard does every thing else.

From here I am going to leave you on your own to do what all of us do when we want to know more about something we do some research and learn and use the service or product that we want to know about. I have given you the information on the basis of what IIS is and how to install it on an XP computer. It is up to you to go out and expand upon that knowledge.

Cheers!

Good Job lol

Default Re: Microsoft IIS

How is this for an explanation?

The main purpose of IIS is to respond to HTTP get page requests. Now think of all the applications that rely on web components.

WWW Web service for displaying web pages

SQL 2000. HTTP queries and also the Monitor service

Exchange uses the SMTP virtual server

OWA (Outlook Web Access) thin clients of Exchange

FTP if you allow client to load up files

NNTP another virtual server this time for network news groups. NNTP is also needed by Exchange 2000/3

SharePoint Portal server needs the FrontPage Web Extensions

Web or Internet based printing another use of Web Extensions

Taken off this site http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/w2k3/W2K3_IIS6.htm

Here are some other links that might help you out as well.

This is all good and well, but I think that mine was just as good if not better. If all that you wanted was for us to post a bunch of links to pages that explain certain aspect of IIS then we could have done that. All you had to do was ask.

Cheers!

Your response was also very helpful. My other response was not intended for you. it was more so intended towards a mod such as DJChris who was not so helpful.
