Using IIS Manager

Discussion in 'General troubleshooting' started by DavidLJ, Nov 1, 2014.

  1. I am having trouble connecting to my site with IIS Manager. I have a new computer with Windows 8.1, and installed the IIS Manager windows component. When I open IIS Manager, it shows Connections. When I click on the File menu option, the only choices are Exit and Save Connection, which is greyed out. There is no Create New Connection option.

    Does this imply that I should have installed something else? Any help is appreciated

    Hi David,

    Can you provide us with a screen shot of what you're seeing? I don't have access to a Windows 8.1 desktop right now, but if I remember correctly, the interfaces were the same.

  5. Here's a possible IIS Manager problem. Maybe you can help:

    I followed all the steps on this page and I still get a "unable to connect to the remote server" error:

    I also noticed that I can't connect via FTP via Filezilla, but I can using Windows File Explorer. I'm not sure if it's related or not.

    Has anybody experienced this?

    Might be a firewall issue. Try temporarily disabling it to connect.
