Make the move to IIS 7 with this practical guide

Microsoft's IIS 7 is a radical departure from previous versions of IIS, and it promises administrators a new level of control over their Web servers, with its modular design and a flexible, extensible architecture that creates new opportunities for customization. This book guides you beyond the networking technology and concepts you already know and teaches you the crucial new features of IIS 7 that will help you succeed with this dramatically different Web server.

From navigating the new interface to adjusting settings entirely in XML to configuring IIS 7 for maximum security, this book covers the techniques, tricks, and basic instruction you need to take full advantage of IIS 7. Special sidebars provide information that can help developers coordinate efforts with administrators right from the start of projects to get the best outcomes.
