It is beyond the scope of this guide to discuss complete configuration of a Windows web server. However, the following list gives a recommended minimum of what is required in the web server. (This list is for Windows Server 2008 R2. The list is similar for Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008, but there may be slight differences.)

Common HTTP Features: Static Content Default Document Directory Browsing HTTP Errors HTTP Redirection Application Development ASP .NET .NET Extensibility ISAPI Extensions ISAPI Filters Health and Diagnostics HTTP Logging Logging Tools Request Monitor Tracing Security Basic Authentication Windows Authentication Digest Authentication Client Certificate Mapping Authentication IIS Client Certificate Mapping Authentication URL Authorization Request Filtering IP and Domain Restrictions Performance Static Content Compression Dynamic Content compression Management Tools IIS Management Console IIS Management Scripts and Tools Management Service

Note that with IIS 7.5 running on Windows Server 2008 R2, some of the above are not selected by default. In particular, "HTTP Errors" and "HTTP Redirection" are not selected by default. Therefore, you must activate them manually.
