Web Help Desk does not integrate with IIS. Web Help Desk runs on port 8081 by default. To run Web Help Desk on port 80, disable IIS on your Windows Server system.

Additionally, if your system is connected to multiple IP addresses and one IP address uses IIS, bind IIS and Web Help Desk to separate the IP addresses.
