Hi All,

Is this possible...

I am running Windows Server 2008 Standard with IIS 6 SP 2 and it currently has several websites configured within it.

What I want to do is set a test website without having to configure a domain name. Is it possible to use the IP address of a current site and just change the port?

If this is possible could you provide instructions on how to setup this site as I am an IIS novice?

Many thanks,

Rit

Hi,

At a command prompt, type runas /user:Administrative_AccountName "mmc %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\iis.msc"

To add a Web site using a unique port identifier using the Web Site Creation Wizard
1.
In IIS Manager, expand the local computer, right-click the Web Sites directory, point to New, and then click Web Site.
2.
In the Web Site Creation Wizard, click Next.
3.
In the Description box, type the name that you have selected for the Web site, and then click Next.
4.
In the Enter the IP address to use for this Web site box, click the IP address used for all sites on this server.
5.
In the TCP port this Web site should use box, type the unique port number reserved for this site.
6.
Optional: In the Host Header for this Web site (Default:None) box, type the host header name to identify the Web site. The host header name must containing the full name of the site, for example, www.microsoft.com.
7.
If SSL encryption is enabled on the server, type the SSL port number, and then click Next. If SSL encryption is not enabled on the server, the SSL port box does not appear.
8.
In the Path box, type or browse to the path of your Web site home directory.
9.
To create a secured or private Web site, clear the Allow anonymous access to this Web site check box, and click Next. (Web sites are configured for anonymous access by default.)
10.
In the Web Site Access Permissions box, set the permissions for the home directory.
11.
Click Next, and then click Finish.

Thanks gaurav05, this is very helpful.

What happens if I don't have a domain for this site as it is purely for testing and may even be temporary so no domain name will be  required.

Thanks,

Rich
