I downloaded and installed IIS 7.0 Manager for Remote Administration (x86). I then rebooted. Upon running inetmgr.exe, I get to IIS Manager. However, it is pulling up my computer's IIS Connection by default. I CANNOT connect to remote locations. There
is no Start Page with options to connect to other sites, etc.
I am using Windows Vista Business w/ SP1. Anyone have any ideas on why it doesn't give me connection options? It works fine on my wife's Vista Home Edition.

The menu you are asking for can be found like this,
1. Go in the Connections panel,
2. Find its tool bar on the top.
3. Click the first icon so it shows up three menu items for you to choose.

Can you open the IIS 7 Manager for Remote Administration from this path directly?
%ProgramFiles%\IIS\IIS Manager 7.0\InetMgr.exe
Please let me know if this manager has those menu items enabled.

Do you have the remote manager installed? It's required for Vista.
