IIS Tools - truck load of them at www.iis.net

Today, I had to deliver a talk on Security features in .NET and IIS and I was going through the www.iis.net website.  In the past I had been there for Smooth streaming and other stuff but I stumbled upon the tools, a truck load of them that are very handy utilities while managing a webserver.

  • URL Scan
  • Site Shell
  • Server Defender

and much more related to security at http://www.iis.net/downloads/Security

and with respect to performance http://www.iis.net/downloads/Performance

Ok, and my titbit for this post is that, if you want to use the URL Scan utility on your server running IIS 7, IIS 7.5, you need to enable IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility before configuring the tool. 

Here is a write up on the same site to do that at http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/125/metabase-compatibility-with-iis-7/

Cheers !!!
