Configuring Security

Control Connections to the HTTP Exchange Virtual Server

The HTTP Exchange Virtual Server is the default Web site provided by IIS. You can find this virtual server in System Manager by choosing Servers, then Protocols, then HTTP. You cannot manage this virtual server from System Manager. It must be administered from the IIS snap-in. All other HTTP virtual servers can be managed from System Manager. In the IIS snap-in, the HTTP Exchange Virtual Server appears as Default Web Site.

To control connections on the HTTP Exchange Virtual Server:

  1. Start Internet Services Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Services Manager.
  2. Navigate to the HTTP Exchange Virtual Server (listed as Default Web Site in IIS).
