Taking a Quick Tour

After you've installed IIS, you can take a quick tour of the major components that have been put into place. To do so, first start Internet Explorer, and enter the URL //localhost. Localhost is shorthand for "the IP address of this machine" and will display Internet Explorer's default installation Web page. You will see the default page shown in Figure 18.3. Internet Explorer will also fire up the online documentation for IIS in a separate browser window.

Figure 18.3. IIS serves you a welcome page when first installed. A remote browser, using your real IP address rather than localhost, would see a plain "Under construction" page.
