    Hi mohit_v,

    IIS does not allow local non-administrator users to use it. If you want to open it, you must configure the administrator locally. The administrator uses IIS and joins the allowed users or user groups. This is a rule set by IIS for security to prevent any user or non-administrator from maliciously modifying the configuration while IIS is running and affecting the operation of sites.

    To allow a Windows user or group to connect to a site or an application

    1. Open IIS Manager. For information about opening IIS Manager, see Open IIS Manager (IIS 7).

    2. In the Connections pane, expand the Sites node and select the site for which you want to grant permission to a Windows user or group. Or, expand the site and select the application for which you want to grant permission to a Windows user or group.

    3. In Features View, double-click IIS Manager Permissions.

    4. On the IIS Manager Permissions page, in the Actions pane, click Allow User.

    5. On the Allow User dialog box, select Windows to select a Windows user or group. Then click Select to open the Select User or Group dialog box.

    6. Optionally, click Object Types to select the type of Windows objects for which you want to search. You can select the check box for Users, Groups, or both.

    7. Optionally, click Locations if you want to search for users or groups on a domain to which the computer is joined. Otherwise, leave the default value in the From this location box as the computer name to search for a user or group on the local computer.

    8. In the Enter object name to select box, type the name of a user or group and then click Check Names.

    9. Click OK to dismiss the Select User or Group dialog box, and then OK to dismiss the Allow User dialog box.

    Best regards,
