I have upgraded to XP pro SP2 and now IIS will not work. Worse still if I try to go into IIS and look at the setting sit just locks out when I click on IIS in admin management.

Any ideas. I am well fed up with this as I cannot develop on my computer now!

Go into Control Panel select Windows Firewall.  Goto to the Advance Tab - Select you Intreface (LAN) and click on the settings.  Make sure you have Web Server HTTP and HTTPS checked as well as the port you have your Admin Web Console.  You may have to create this rule to allow the access.

Sometimes I just hate Microsoft! They give you a wonderful new upgrade which fiddles with all your settings but don't tell you what it has done.

This works now - thanks.

You probably are not allowed to answer this next question but  ..... Norton Internet Security causes me so much grief, I have de-installed it and propose to use the Microsoft firewall - is this wise or would you use another firewall program - I really do not like NIS and refuse to put this back on.

Thanks again - much appreciated.

As much as you hate NIS it is more advanced than the MS Firewall.  Granted I know it is a weasel to setup the first week or so, once you get the hang of it you will appreciate those little pop-ups (True Threats).  The fact that the definitions for threats are updated daily/weekly puts you at an advantage against hackers.  If you are set on not using NIS I have observed good ratings from ZoneAlarm and McAfee's solutions.  I'm not a fan of McAfee, but ZoneAlarm I have received really good feedback.  My personal favorite is NIS, but don't go on what I use, but rather what works and has the least administrative foot print.  One thing to also consider is the long term strategy of companies as they integrate all of their solutions.  Having one admin interface for Antivirus, Spam, Firewall, Pop-up blocker, etc is a bonus.

Thanks, I'll go for ZONE Alarm as I use it on my other computers and AVG for antivirus.

Much appreciated.
