I have setup the filter before (32bit on IIS6 32bit) so am familiar with setting it up but I am that bit new to IIS7/7.5.

The thing is, so far so good. I have installed the x64 bit version of the filter and tested it locally, within a remote RDP connection on the server itself, by going to the status url and by testing a website.
(I have a simple rule employed to rewrited from the base domain.com to www.domain.com for SEO purposes)

Yet when I try to browse to this same website remotely the rules are not picked up at all well rather I should say the filter is not working.

Maybe I am just missing a setting in the IIS 7 config to allow remote connections to use the filter?

I appreciate your help and feedback,

There's no setting to allow remote connections to use the filter.

All connections will use the filter, if you've got it set up.

There is a setting to allow or disallow remote connections from using /iirfStatus .

Check the documentation for how to modify that.
