Internet Information Services (IIS) formerly called Internet Information Server is a web server application and set of feature

re extension modules created by Microsoft for use with Microsoft Windows. IIS 7.5 supports HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS, SMTP and NNTP. It is an integral part of the 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.

The IIS Manager is accessed through the Microsoft Management Console or Administrative Tools in the Control Panel.

Typically, a lease line is a telephone line that has been given dedicated connections between to points, so that the connection is never broken. To handle large volumes of data, a telephone company will take 24 pairs of wires, each representing a single residential service line, and combine them into a single circuit, called a 'T1', which can handle about 1.5 megabits per second of data transmission.

Broadband is any World Wide Web connection that provides more than 250 kilobits per second of data transmission. By using fiber optics and coaxial cable, data rates of over 3 megabits per second are routinely being offered to cable customers.

The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) is responsible for the global coordination of the DNS Root, IP addressing, and other Internet protocol resources. This includes the registration of commonly used port numbers for well-known Internet services.

Port is registered with IANA for the application = Official Port is not registered with IANA for the application = UnOfficial

Telnet = port - 23(Official)

FTP = port - 20(Data Tx), 21(Command), 22(SSH, Secured file Transfers and port forwarding)

HTTP = port - 80(Official)

RPC = port 530 (Official), 135(Unofficial-Microsoft EPMAP (End Point Mapper), also known as DCE/RPC Locator service, used to remotely manage services including DHCP server, DNS server and WINS. Also used by DCOM)

The port numbers are divided into three ranges: the well-known ports, the registered ports, and the dynamic or private ports. The well-known ports are those from 0 through 1023. Examples include: 20 & 21: File Transfer Protocol (FTP) 20-Data connection , 21- Control connection 22: Secure Shell (SSH) 23: Telnet remote login service 25: Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) 53: Domain Name System (DNS) service 80: Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) used in the World Wide Web 110: Post Office Protocol (POP3) 119: Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP) 143: Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) 161: Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) 443: HTTP Secure (HTTPS) 135: Remote Procedure Call (RPC) 389: LDAP queries 3268: Global catalog queries

Telnet : Remote login works on port number 23.

Allows you to establish remote session on the server. Does not support Graphical User Interface (GUI) interface but supports only through commands, i:e; command line utility. And provides very little security.

FTP : File Transfer Protocol works on port number 21. FTP works on Application Layer Protocol and is used to transfer files securely between TCP/IP systems, providing file security. More secured because of user authentication and user logons and uses two types of connections (Data and Control Connection). FTP uses many commands and FTP uses TCP,i:e; 20 port number for data connection and 21 for control connection.

HTTP : Hypertext Transfer Protocol works on port number 80. HTTP is used to transfer hypertext files across internet. Requires an HTTP client program on one end and HTTP server program on other end.

RPC : Remote Procedure Calls works on port number 135. RPC is used for remote administration. Its function is to forward application function call to a remote system over the network. It can be used in IPv6 or IPng (IP version 6 or IP next generation which uses 128 - bit IP addressing).
