Why won't an IAGSServerConnection work from IIS but will work from VS Server

I have a Rest service that needs to open an IAGSServerConnection.  When I run this from the Visual Studio application server or run it in a unit test harness everything works fine.  But if I try to run from IIS it will give me an error on the IAGSServerConnectionFactory::Open.

Access Denied:  Either the SOM service is not running or user is not a member fo the agsuser or agsadmin group....

For fun I tried adding user and password to the property set, but that has not impact.

In IIS I have done all the things that I have read need to be done to run ArcObjects.

Classic .NET AppPool is set to Integrated (I have tried both Classic and Integrated with same result) and I have Enable 32-bit applications set to true
My folder is an Application not a virtual directory
The application uses the Classic .NET AppPool

Can someone please explain what needs to change for a service to run from IIS that is different from it running in Visual Studio

Well it seem it is something to do with when running from IIS you must treat the connection like an internet connection to the service catalog and not like a LAN connection.  I changed my PropertySet from setting machine name to setting Url and not it is working
