I am trying to Administrate IIS4.0 remotely, IIS is running on a NT4 workstation. When i try to access it i get the error message below, but when i try to edit the Security properties to define I.P. addresses the option is greyed out, this is probably easy but i can't figure it out!

HTTP Error 403 - Access to Internet Service Manager (HTML) is restricted to Localhost
403.6 Forbidden: IP address rejected

As a security precaution, Setup restricts Internet Service Manager (HTML) to allow access only from the server computer itself (Localhost, IP address 127.0.0.1).

You must know the (randomly assigned) TCP port number and use that when connecting to IIS (http:\\<IIS Server>:<TCP port number>.  You can find this by looking at your Adminstration Web Site Properties sheet.

The answer is very good but i found out you can't run remote admin on NT Workstation, only Server!

I run remote admin from Win95.  I am surprised you can't do it from NTW!  Or do you mean your can only remotely administer IIS if IT is running in NTS?  That is probably true.

You only have to add the IP address of your computer(s) to the list of computers granted access to AdminWebSite. This list ist restricted to localhost by default. You might also grant access for this site to all computers.
Read the message you get trying to connect to IISADMIN, all you have to do stands there.
