To be frank, if you work for a 'big' company, you probably should NOT be randomly installing IIS servers across your WAN. My 'big' company considers such things actionable, which is a nice way of saying "... a person could lose their job."

If it truly is that 'big' a company, I suggest you request such a thing be installed for you by your qualified IT department. They will ask for a reason, you may use "development and test" -- that should get you in the door.

I am hesitant to answer your question for those very reasons. While the answer could be something simplistic, I would not personally relish the concept of decreasing the security at your location via assisting you in this fashion.

In my 'big company', programmers request assets to accomplish their work, they don't go around throwing up IIS boxes.

Since i'm a developer i'm doing this only for testing & i'll remove it after the technical department put for us a server for our applications . We might be responsible for this server(developing test) later , So i'm preparing my self for this step to handle the server .
