How do I forward a URL to a sub-page in IIS

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I am running a Windows 2008 server with IIS 7.0. I need to forward a URL/Domain to a specific page within our new site. For example department.oldsite.com needs to point to www.newsite.com/department.

Also for internal reasons I don't want to maintain a site or any pages for oldsite.com. Is there a setting within IIS that will allow me to do this? I've looked into 301 re-directs, domain aliases and even virtual webs, but I am not sure which is the right tool for the job?
