3Microsoft IIS 6 or IIS 7  must be installed on a Web server if you intend to use the NBTProxy Service to enable HTTP/HTTPS communication from Prism clients or Prism Console outside the network perimeter, to a Prism Server inside the network perimeter. IIS installation and configuration is not part of the Prism Suite installation. Note: If you choose to install IIS 7, you must also install the IIS 6.0 management tools in order to install the NBTProxy Service. (Installing the IIS 6 management tools is a choice during installation of IIS 7.)
