Overview of IIS

Internet Information Server is one of the most powerful web servers provided by Microsoft that is able to host and run your web applications. IIS can support following Protocol FTP, FTPS, SMTP, NNTP , HTTP/HTTPS. We can host our web sites on IIS, we can use it as a FTP site also.  For more information Click Here

How to Install IIS 6.0

It is the most used web server after Apache HTTP Server: As of January 2011, it served 21.00% of all websites on the Internet and 16.22% of the one million busiest websites on the Internet.[1] IIS 7.5 supports HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS, SMTP and NNTP. It is an integral part of Windows Server family of products, as well as certain editions of Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. IIS is not turned on by default when Windows is installed.

Sorry for my previous pst.

You cannot install IIS6.0 on XP. It's part of Windows 2003 Server and can
only be installed on that system.

You can install IIS5.1 which is part of Add/Remove Windows Components in
Add/Remove Programs in the Control Pane
