I would reply honestly.

Why do you ask? I hope you are not asking so that you can try to fake having experience with it.

Does IIS allow you for instance say I had a security patch that needed to be deployed on say 30 servers could I use one server with IIS and the patch on that server to deploy it on the other 30 servers? Or if I had an application with the same example I just gave.

I believe this is one of other things IIS can do. Is that correct?

....why not ask a clearer question? what exactly are you trying to do?

MS updates in a network environment y ou can use WSUS to distribute them from a central location...

there are multiple methods for pushing out applications across a network...

Please explain how IIS is used? What is its purpose? Please no links for google search. Anyone can do that. Please just explain in your own, simple words.

IIS stands for Internet Information Services
Basically, its a web host program.. You host webpages with it.
Apache is it's linux equivalent, and it is far better. Furthermore, there exists apache ports for windows.

Hope this helped.

I run my family web server with Apache under Windows XP Pro so it's more that a Linux equivalent.

I completely agree lol

There are ports for windows, thats linux lingo for saying that they made versions of apache for Windows. But originally, apache is/was linux based. :)
