What is your exact requirement ?

If you want to grant access certain users to request certificate, you need to control it through Certificate templates in active directory
Certificate templates are available only if you have AD integrated CA installed

I think you have raised another question for same reason, I have posted my comment there to achieve this

If you set IIS rules,and if this server is in workgroup, then you can restrict web site use to local users only

The another way you could do that via restricting TCP port 80 and 443 towards web server via other network segments and this can be achieved through windows firewall rules on server itself or if you have any network firewall between computers and this server

Wow.....I am getting more info...
Mahesh can you please help me in giving some links...
The server in domain enviornment, installed standalone Root CA.
Admins will request certificate through URL, issue certificate from CA, and export certificate from cert URL. ( Basically this has been setup for client authentication for non domain laptops.

For restriction.

I logged on windows.
Oped IIS, disabled anonyms access....Enabled Windows authentication, in the edit option I made it enhanced protection with the options of Require.
After doing this I see that when accessing URL from network PC, it ask for usetname and password....but it is not going through even I give the CA server local account.

In this scenario anything settings (either in firewall or IIS level)  that can help to protect the page, it must ask for username and password...and allow post success validation.

Please help ...
Thanks to help ...

Regards,
Skumar.

Enable basic authentication role service in IIS and then disable windows authentication and anonymous authentication and enable basic authentication on server, default web site and certsrv virtual directory, then it will work by providing username and password

Also you need to directly edit NTFS permissions on IIS certsrv virtual directory, otherwise users who has entered ad username and password will get web page access
U may create AD group with all unwanted user members and provide them deny read permissions on Certsrv virtual directory

OR

You could install URL authorization in IIS role service and then deny permissions to above group from there
http://www.iis.net/configreference/system.webserver/security/authorization

Also you can \ may use windows firewall on certificate server as well to control from which machine can connect to web site
