Local testing for sub-domains using Url rewriter, Asp.Net 2
Posted on 2009-03-29
I am using UrlRewriting.Net for url rewriting in Asp.Net 2 and IIS 5.1 (offline) and IIS 6 (online)
The application performs the following:
A url of the following nature: http://username.site.com is re-written as http://site.com/Default.aspx?user=username
This works perfectly online. However, I would like to know how we could test this offline.
I have tried pointing the application to 127.0.0.1 via IIS and then putting username.site.com in the hosts file to point to 127.0.0.1 - but it does not work out.
The website loads up - but the querystring is not generated.
Also tried putting just site.com -> 127.0.0.1 in the hosts file and accessing username.site.com. But in this case, the website does not load (site not found)
