Urlmappings - works locally not on server IIS

Hi,
I'm trying to use the urlmappings in asp.net 2.0 on iis 6 / win 2003.
Everything works fine on my local xp vs 2005 edition, but on server I get a 404 page.
Here is sample of web.config with relevant bits:
<system.web>
<urlMappings enabled="true">
      <add url="~/wakefield.html" mappedUrl="~/partner/index.aspx?p=1"/>
    </urlMappings>
</system.web>

- when I go to wakefield.html local, everything works fine and it goes to the correct page.
On the server I get a 404 page.

If I change it to

<add url="~/wakefield.aspx" mappedUrl="~/partner/index.aspx?p=1"/>
ie change the file type to aspx from html, everything works fine, so I know the code is ok.  Am I missing something in the setup of IIS and the way it copes with the .html?

Any help greatly appreciated,
Andrew

Do you have HTML mapped to ASPNET_Isapo in the application mappings?

If no then requests to .html pages will not be handled by ASP.Net and will not be mapped properly.

Cheers Dave - but did you actually mean aspnet_isapi.dll ?  Mapped this and all seems to work now.

D'oh!  Yes, I fumble fingered my spelling.

aspnet_isapi.dll is correct.  

If you actally have an aspnet_isapo mapping you might want to run some antivirus scans.....  ;-)
