1.You need to open IIS Manager on you local PC,if you do not have it installed then you can download if from

2.Log into your control panel and click on Websites on the left hand menu - then click on the site you wish to enable Remote Management.

3.Click on the Management Tab and set a username/password,press update.

4.Open IIS Manager on your local PC and click on File | Connect to a Site | then enter in your website name in both server name field and site name field,press next.

5.Enter the username/password that you entered in step 3 | press next (if a server certificate alert appers,say connect)

6.Enter a connection name ie. your website name,press finish - it should not connect to the server.

It wasn't quite clear to me that for IIS7, even though you have "IIS Manager" installed, you actually still need to install the IIS7 Remote Admin Manager from the above link (easily done using the Web Platform Manager).
