How To Configure IIS To Listen On Specific IP Address

Windows Server 2008 / IIS 7

Step 1 – Run command prompt and type “netsh”.

C:\netsh

Step 2 – Type “http”.

netsh>http

Step 3 – Enter the following command to display the list of IP addresses to listen on. If no IP addresses are displayed, IIS will listen on all IP addresses by default.

netsh http>show iplisten

Step 4 – Use the command below to configure IIS to listen on a specific IP address. Replace 127.0.0.1 with the desired IP address and run the command again for additional IP addresses.

netsh http>add iplisten ipaddress=127.0.0.1
