IIS 7.0 significantly increases Web infrastructure security. For more information about IIS security-related topics, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
Internet Information Server (IIS) 4.0 and Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0 include Administration Web pages that allow users to change passwords only when a Web server is running on the IIS default port of 80. This article describes how to modify these pages to work on other ports.
By default, the IIS installation creates a folder in the following location:
The following files are then copied to that folder:
Open each of the pages and search the text for the following string:
For each occurrence of this text, if the URL begins with "http://<%iis.SERVER_NAME%>" change it to read "http://<%iis.SERVER_NAME%>:PORT1," where PORT1 is the port that the Web site is listening on.
Likewise, change each URL that begins with "https://<%iis.SERVER_NAME%>" to read "https://<%iis.SERVER_NAME%>:PORT2," where PORT2 is the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) port that the Web site is listening on.
