Can anyone please tell what is the step by step procedure to configure IIS with Tomcat so that I can access the Servlets as well as JSP through IIS.
It would be great if you can give this information. The things i've done are as follows.

I've downloaded the isapi_redirect-1.2.8.dll
I'm not able to create ISAPI_Filter in the IIS Management Console.
I really don't know where to put this dll file.

My directory structure is as follows:

So my servlet files are in prem directory which needs to be accessed.

My Tomcat version is 3.2

I put the .dll fine in d:\Tomcat\bin\native folder.

I've even changed the file and the file also as said in the Tomcat IIS HowTo document.

Kindly let me know the entire process.

Why are you trying to use Tomcat 3.2 - that is really out of date. All of the advice you are likely to find will apply to later versions.
I got Tomcat 4.1.28 running with IIS - Windows 2003 server. It took a lot of fiddling around and many of the pages I was referred to were for other versions - what a pain.

Hi Vijay Vaddem,
First of all thanks a lot for the help. But my next problem is that i'm not able to make my servlets work using the IIS. I'm able to configure both IIS and Tomcat, but what should I do to make my servlets work.

The files I need to access from Tomcat/webapps/prem/WEB-INF/classes/x servlet. This servlet is working fine when run in Tomcat.But i'm not able to access it using IIS. Please help me with this. It would be great if you can give the configuration of the file structure in IIS.

Thanks in advance.

I agree. Here's the link:
