comment Block access to subdirectory using Web.config
That doesn't work because the files are .txt files... I think John Rennie is right that ASP.NET doesn't get a chance to interfere with .txt files.

comment File in use when deploying .NET code in IIS6
When it's greyed out, the site is not loaded (by IIS at least). Something else might be pinning it down. I've had the search service pin down a directory to index it. It could also be an open EXPLORER window or a CMD shell with the default directory set to the directory in question.

comment IIS Time Zone and daylight saving changes
When you say "the application code calls getDateTime" -- could you be more specific? What language is the application written in? How is it running? It sounds like more of a problem with the application than IIS per se

comment How to set up a VPN Incoming connection with Windows to tunnel Internet traffic?
I've never used Win2k8 web edition... there is probably a workaround that I just don't know, I'm afraid, but that version of the server is specifically designed JUST for serving web pages, so for all I know it might be lacking the routing features that would make this possible.
