I am trying to add FTP site under IIS  10 and each time IIS Manager keep crashing it just says : "IIS Manager has stopped working"

hi Dan,

Thanks for checking.
This was solved by changing the TCP/IPv4 Properties
WINS setting  by ticking 'Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP'.

1. Are you an admin on the server?
2. Are you using IIS Manager locally or remotely?

This is the source of the error:  Exception:System.Net.Sockets.SocketException (0x80004005): No such host is known and would seem to indicate that IIS Manager is having issues resolving an IPv6 host name.

Can you post the output of this command: (DOS Console)

ipconfig /all

Are you purposely trying to use an IPv6 IP Address?
