IIS 6.0 is preconfigured in IIS 5.0 lockdown mode. This restricts anonymous users from accessing the web server and prevents the web server from serving out any non-registered file type. A number of extra steps need to be taken to serve the AppWorx Java Client and the associated help files.
There are three main steps to configure AppWorx to work with IIS 6.0:
1. Add a virtual directory.
2. Granting Permissions to the <IUSR_MACHINE NAME> user.
3. Create MIME types for the jnlp and application specific files.
