Additionally, other services such as an FTP server can be set up. In other words, it is a set of services that allow you to perform various tasks on servers in a Windows environment. This is very interesting since it allows to centralize all the necessary elements in one single application. On the other hand, this service is incorporated into the Windows system. However, it is disabled by default. For that reason, we will see how to enable Internet Information Services IIS in Windows 10.
