I have a web based app on my laptop that I use with IIS on the local machine, I cannot have this accessed via other machines on the network, what is the best config of IIS for this scenario?

if you want this behavior only for one website, you can use IP Restrictions:
if you want to block the TCP 80 port, use a firewall.

Thanks, I had a look at my version of IIS and it is 5.1 (yikes), there are several web sites setup so I went to proerties on one and under Directory Security I fould IP address and Name restrictions I figure that is where I would limit remote access, but
it was greyed out, I am logged on as the Local admin.... thoughts?

It's normal to have the remove and edit buttons greyed by default.
But you should have the 'Add' button available.
So, the process is:
- check the radio button 'Denied access'
- click the 'Add' button
- check the radio button 'Single computer'
- enter '127.0.0.1' in the 'IP address' field
and Voilà! The website will now be available only from the webserver itself.

when rereading my post to check typos, I just saw something else : you said that your IIS version is 5.1
v5 (windows 2000) was already a BAD thing, but v5.1 > OMG! Windows XP. So don't look further, you can't use IP restriction. IIS 5.1 is a (very) limited version of IIS 5, and the IP restriction section is greyed out because this feature (and many else) is
not available in this version.
> UPGRADE to an up2date server OS. At least Windows Server 2008 R2 with IIS 7.5.

Firstly, I suggest you upgrade your iis to the latest version ASAP, at that case, what you want to do is very simple.
Now for IIS 5, please check the image below:
you can find more detailed content from this document:
To configure ip address access you can follow the procedures below:
1. Open IIS Manager
2. Locate the site and right-click it and then select "propertieis"
3. On the Directory Security Tab click the "Edit" button under the Ip address and domain name restrictions
4. Now you can add the ip address access to the blocking list

His version of IIS is 5.1, so Windows XP so he can't use IP restriction.
