When you install Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0 in Windows Server 2008, IIS binds to all IP addresses on the server, not merely the IP addresses that are assigned to Web sites. This behavior may occur even though you have set the DisableSocketPooling metabase property in the IIS configuration settings to True.
This issue occurs when the IP listen list is not configured by using specific IP addresses. By default, this behavior occurs in IIS 7.0.
To resolve this issue, use the Netsh command prompt utility to configure the IP listen list in Windows Server 2008.
