Each month Microsoft TechNet publishes an IIS Insider column answering questions from readers. This month I was privileged to be able to write the column, and it's now up on the Microsoft Technet website.

This month we cover using ASP.NET's forms authentication to protect non-ASP.NET resources, creating a trusted connection between IIS and SQL Server in a workgroup environment, and populating ASP's Logon_User Server Variable.

An archive of previous Q&A is also available.

David Wang's already blogged the issues the IIS team has run into getting Debug Diagnostics onto the main download site.

Until we get Debug Diagnostics up on the Microsoft Download site, you can obtain the RTM Debug Diagnostics pieces from the Microsoft Beta site. Go to http://beta.microsoft.com and use the GuestID DebugDiag. You can obtain DebugDiag and a useful slide deck explaining some of the main functions.

If you attended Microsoft Tech.Ed 2005 there was a session on DebugDiag. I was lucky enough to present the session in Australia, and I'll see if I can get permission to post the slide deck up here. If you were attendee, you can get the deck from Commnet.

Yes, and No.

If you have Longhorn Server build 5219, then IIS 7.0 is present. However if you have Vista build 5219* then there is no IIS.

Before anyone asks - Longhorn Server build 5219 is not widely available. No you can't just download it from anywhere.

* Disclaimer I used vista_usa_5219.050830-2010_x86fre_win-dvd.iso - perhaps there are other 5219 Vista builds out there that do have IIS present, but this particular build is the one available from PDC, MSDN Downloads (Sep CTP) and the Connect beta site.
