Is it safe to install and use IIS for testing purposes? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings,

    Just as the title asks, I'm wondering if it's safe to install and use IIS on my Windows 10 Pro machine for testing/learning purposes.

    When activating IIS, will the default settings be OK for my purposes or are there specific recommendations for hardening my host? I ask because I'm not fully aware of what it's doing behind the scenes.

    This is assuming I have anti-virus, have Windows up-to-date, and have left my firewall in tact.

    Thanks in advance!

    - T.R.G.
