I read about IIS7's remote management capability and felt the same is available from IIS7 Manager in Windows Vista / XP client machines.  I found such a download available for IIS 6 in the below url.  Hope this should server my requirement.

the remote management of iis6 would be handled through terminal services or your browser, not through another version of iis7. But maybe I misunderstood the question?

I believe that you can manage IIS6 using the IIS7 management console.  IIS remote management is enabled by default in IIS6, but in IIS7 is it disabled by default, and has to be enabled.

You can install the console on Windows XP.  The below link has details on how this can be done:
