Default setup global.asa

Hello, I'm new to asp but I would like to learn more about application variables.
I created a simple global.asa and ftp'd it to the (test)webserver of my work. I read about setting up a virtual directory before getting the global.asa to work.
But, how do I do such a thing on the remote server? Or does one of the server administrators have to do it for me... (i hate to ask them, because I'm just learning and testing and they are busy enough doing their "serious job")
Thanx in advance

The most simple way is to use the Internet Service Manager. If you do not have access to the webserver, you have to ask the administrator. But hey, it only takes a minute and since when is learning and testing *not* a serious job? ;)

Default Finally! Global.asa is setup and working!

Thank you for the solution. Alienr, you gave me the clue I needed. Global.asa requires and Application and a virtual directory to be setup before IIS v8 will use it.
