In your image, you have an instance of ISM that's not pointed at (connected to) a web server.  You'll need to Connect to a Server... that is running IIS8.  Once you've done that, you should be able to create a site that points to wherever your web site's files are stored

Hi;

Thanks for the response. The case is that i don't know which server to connect. It should be my localhost, but i don't know my  user name and password in the User name and Password boxes. So, should i ask for those? I didn't set the server by myself.

Regards.

You don't know the name of the machine you're on?  Hmm...

You can usually right-click on "Computer" or "My Computer", select "Properties" and see the name there.  

Barring that, you can probably connect using 127.0.0.1 which is always the local host's IP address.

I know the machine name, but the credentials? Should I "set" or should I use my windows login?

Sorry I misunderstood the previous question.  

Yes, you would use your Windows credentials to authenticate, unless other credentials were provided specifically so you could manage IIS.

Hi;

I try to "connect to server" via "localhost" with my Windows credentials and I end up with "Could not connect to the specified computer. Details: Unable to connect to the remote server".

What should I do?

Regards.

1) Make sure IIS is running on localhost
2) Make sure any software firewall you're running on your computer allows management traffic through.  I'm not sure what port(s) that would be but if you can't find that information, I'll see if I can.

Hi;

Thanks. Do i need the credentials anyway to connect or do you think after installation of remote management of IIS, everything will be resolved? I have limited access for installations, that's the reason I am asking.

regards.

If you're local to the IIS server, I would expect you can connect without further authentication.  If you're remoting in, you might have to provide a username/password

Sorry, this one seems to have dropped off my radar.  I didn't mean to leave you hanging...

I'm not sure what the issue is.  Apparently you can see the IIS server, but cannot authenticate to it.  Either authentication is being blocked or you don't have the proper credentials.  ISM and IIS are pretty straight-forward, so this is not something that is typically a problem.  

I'm sorry I've been unable to help.

you don't have it all installed all that you have installed is the management items. You need to add the rest of the package
