Updated: August 22, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1
You can configure your Web site to use a unique IP address that uniquely identifies the Web site.
Credentials: Membership in the Administrators group on the local computer.
As a security best practice, log on to your computer using an account that is not in the Administrators group, and then use the Run as command to run IIS Manager as an administrator. At the command prompt, type runas /user:administrative_accountname mmc %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\iis.msc.
In IIS Manager, expand the local computer, right-click the Web site you want to configure, and then click Properties.
Click the Web Site tab, and then click the drop-down arrow next to IP Address.
Click the IP address you want to use from the drop-down list of IP addresses, and then click OK.
