Internet Information Services or IIS is Microsoft's web server application. It is based on Windows NT Server, and it supports the World Wide Web, FTP, and gopher, a menu-oriented tool used to locate online resources developed at the University of Minnesota.
Two tricks that I use most often with IIS are to open and reset IIS using the Run command line. Here's how:
Typing inetmgr at the Run command line would open up the Internet Information Services GUI.
Typing iisreset at the Run command line would restart the Internet Information Services.
