Make Web Development Easier with IIS Express - CodeProject

Even though Cassini is the default development web server in Visual Studio, Microsoft has provided a stand-alone option that also integrates with Visual Studio.

We are going to walk through how to get it, how to configure it, and how to make the most of it without spending a lot of time on it.

Windows 8 / IIS 8 Concurrent Requests Limit

IIS 8 on Windows Server 2012 doesn’t have any fixed concurrent request limit, apart from whatever limit would be reached when resources are maxed.
