IIS6 Response.Redirect on IE6

Hi

I have a ASP page wich has a response.redirect on it. Page works fine in every browser apart from IE6 which returns a 500.

I placed exactly the same page on a shared hosting package and it worked fine. So there must be an issue in the way I have IIS6 set up on this server.

Does anyone have any ideas why this would be happening.

Here's the test page on the dedeicated box:
www.academyofexecutivecoaching.com/testrr.asp

Both should re-redirect to the bbc web site. But IE6 gives a 500 error.

Any ideas?



And here it is on another server (shared hosting)
www.academyofexecutivecoaching.com/testrr.asp





<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" CODEPAGE="65001"%>
<%
Response.Redirect("http://www.bbc.co.uk")
%>

IIS help.....

"Enabling ASP Error Processing By default, the default Web site and all of its applications transfer the processing of Active Server
Pages (ASP) errors to the 500-100.asp file. However, any new Web site that you create, or its applications, transfers the processing of 500-100 errors to the default, and not to a custom error file. If you want to develop additional error processing for .asp files, you can do so by either mapping the 500-100 error to the 500-100.asp file or by creating an error-processing .asp file of your own."

Thanks for your input guys. I finally tracked it down.

The URL had an anchor in it. And it seems there is a known issue there you have to put and '&' before the '#'  in the URL. Lovely IE6 for you.

Thanks so much for your input.
Cheers
Craig
