Thank you for contacting Server Intellect!
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/sites. A server administrator can perform almost any task that they could while sitting in front of the server itself and site/application owners can modify and view settings that have been delegated to them by the server administrator.
Using IIS7 Manager to Connect to a Remote Site:
IIS Manager is a very versatile tool that can be used by IIS Administrators to remotely admin all their sites, down to a single shared hosting customer using it to administer their own site.
To connect to a site or an application:
In IIS Manager, click File and then click Connect to a Site (or Connect to an Application).
On the Connect to Site or Connect to Application wizard, type the server name (manage.si-cloud.com) and the site name (i.e. yourdomain.com) to which you want to connect. If you are connecting to an application, type the application name also. Then click Next.
On the Provide Credentials page of the Connect to Site or Connect to Application wizard, you will want to use the credentials found in the Unity Customer Portal under “Hosted Services” > “yourdomain.com” > “Web” > “IIS/FTP User Manager.” After you specify the credentials, click Next to connect to the server.
If the connection succeeds, IIS Manager will display a final page on the Connect to Site or Connect to Application wizard to name the connection.
Once connected, the user will be able to see and use a number of different tools and features.
If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact us.
