You can do it manually, but it is fundamentally the same thing as running IIS Lockdown.

Edit the Urlscan.ini File1. Stop the IISAdmin service, which will also stop all of the services that are dependent on it, such as the World Wide Web Publishing Service.
2. In My Computer, locate the Urlscan folder. By default, this is located at %systemroot%\System32\Inetsrv\Urlscan.
3. In Notepad or another text editor, open the Urlscan.ini file.
4. Locate the following entry:

5. Modify this entry as follows:

6. Save the file.
7. Restart the World Wide Web Publishing service and all of the other services that were stopped when the IISAdmin service was stopped. Starting a service that runs under the IISAdmin service also starts the IISAdmin service.

Thanks buddy... but this is the last option in store. I want to mask it without IISlockdown or any third party utility.

The manual method I posted originally is probably your only other option.
