Default IIS


I'm not sure if this is the proper forum for this, but here goes...

I'm trying to set up IIS on W2K but getting nowhere. Does anyone know of a
more easy to follow set of instructions than the one on

All I want to do is make a photo archive accessible to the internet, but
with restrictions so that people can only view the links I post, and not get
into the actual parent directories. I think this makes sense...

I want to give full access (parent directories) to TWO specific IPs. Is
this possible? Everyone else must be restricted.

Also, I hear IIS is very unsafe compared to Apache. Is this true? I read a
lot of conflicting opinions on this.

Many thanks

There is microsoft.public.inetserver.iis - good group

Just don't enable directory browsing for your directories. By default, it
is off anyway.

Sure, in the IIS snap in in the MMC, pull up the properties of your
directory, go to the Directory Security tab, click Edit in the "IP address
and domain name restrictions," switch the default to DENY access, and then
add the IPs that are allowed. (If you're hosting this on W2K Pro as opposed
to W2K Server, I don't believe this option will be enabled. You need Server.)

A server is as safe as the administrator is diligent, regardless of the OS
or software.
