I would appear from the error that NAnt can't find IIS on the server. I haven't worked with this particular nantcontrib task so I can't offer much more than that. I reviewed the docs however, and I don't see much in the way of criteria that would provide an explanation as to why your that task can't find the server.

What about security? How are you connecting to this server?
