Windows Server 2012/Windows 8: Manage Remote IIS Server


By default we cannot manage the remote IIS server in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. It’s kinda sucks. IIS Remote Manager is not installed to begin with!!! We don’t see Connect to a server option.

To manage remote IIS servers we have to install IIS Remote Manager. To install IIS Remote Manager,

– expand and click on the local computer name in IIS Manager console. On the right-hand side Action Pane, click on Get New Web Platform Components.

– Find IIS Manager for Remote Administration v1.1 (or above version) and click Add button.
