The pages in the frames are in diffrent servers, you can not do this unless they are on the same server. Or use activeX

Hold on here  I think I have misunderstood the question. I gather you are trying to see if a frame is the top frame, what about   if (this.parent)

Your frameset is beening loaded from the site; but the page adress in the frameset frames still point to your IIS server.
so the two pages do not come from the same server as GwynforWeb point out that they should.

I have not tried it but if (this.parent) might work as techniqually you have not tried to access the DOM of the top frame which you can only if they are from the same server.

The genereal rule in javascript is that when there is no surrounding frame the properties .parent and .top should point to the page itself. Thus  if(self.parent)  will always be true.

instead you could use:
  if ( self == self.parent ) {  // if there is no surrounding frameset
       // do whatever.
  }
