With IIS 6 is it possible to restrict the header information which is provided to the client?

For example if I have a site configured and perform a wget -S www.site.com, I get

 1 HTTP/1.1 200 OK
 2 Content-Type: text/html
 3 Server: Microsoft-IIS/6.0                         <<<---- I want to suppress this
 4 Date: Tue, 28 Sep 2004 21:09:09 GMT
 5 Connection: close

If it's at all possible.

Regards,

Joe G.

The best way I know of to do it is with software called ServerMask from Port 80 Software (see http://www.port80software.com/).

Hi,

I think it may not possible to do that, until unless you use third party utilities to do that as humeniuk
 says. And if there is anyway, i will also learn new thing from this...

Hello,

you cannot do that with IIS6 alone but you can download MS URLScan 2.5 (free) which have this capability (read the "RemoveServerHeader" section of the comparaison table on http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/tools/urlscan.mspx)
