iis7 rewrite with exception for virtual directory

Right now we are using the IIS7 URL rewrite tool to redirect folks from https://site.name.com/ to https://site.name.com/folder1/default.aspx.  This is working perfectly.  Except, now I need to write an exception to allow some folks to directly access a virtual directory https://site.name.com/virtualdirectory.  

Thus, i still need rule 1.  But I also need to let folks go explicity to https://site.name.com/virtualdirectory without being redirected to https://site.name.com/

Again, this is the IIS7 URL rewrite utility.

Thanks.

Hi,
Create your rule like such. This will only look for a clean URL at the root. So if a user types http://your.domain.com, they get redirected to http://your.domain.com/folder1/default.aspx.
If they type http://your.domain.com/somefolder/default.aspx, they will see http://your.domain.com/somefolder/default.aspx because the regex is not satisfied.
MATCH URL
   Requested URL: Matches the pattern                              Using:  Regular Expressions
   Pattern : (.*)                                                                          Ignore Case :  "Checked"

CONDITIONS
   Logical Grouping: Match All                          
            {URL}  - Match the pattern - ^/$
ACTION
   Action Type:  Redirect
   Redirect URL:  http://your.domain.com/folder1/default.aspx
   Append query string:  "Checked"
  Redirect Type:  Permanent (301)

Hi,
You could also keep your existing rule and place a conditional filter on it.
CONDITIONS
   Logical Grouping: Match All            
              {REQUEST_URI}  - Does Not Match the pattern - ^somefolder$

Hades666,

Thank you.  I think I will add the conditional filter on my existing rewrite.

What does the carrot stand for in this syntax?  That didn't seem to work. ^somefolder$.  $ standsfor sub-directories and that worked fine.

I will post back and let you know how it goes.

Thanks, K

^ is start of String.
$ is end of string.
