I'm trying to redirect the default website to a specific login page so that whenever someone types in the url, IIS will redirect the request to the login page.  How does one accomplish this in IIS7?  I have tried the HTTP Redirect thing with absolutely no luck.  I just keep getting the green IIS7 default page.

Just use code to do it.

in js

document.location = "loginpage.html";

in php

header("Location: loginpage.php");

etc

It sounds to me that you're just trying to set your login page as the default page, not create a redirect.

To do this, simply click on your website in IIS and then open the Default Document feature.  Click on Add, and then type in the name of your login page (for example: login.asp).  After that, click on the page you just added and choose Move Up until the login page is at the top of the list.

If the login page is on your document root you can accomplish this by configuring default page in iis 7.
If it will solve your problem, try this link.

I hope it will help.

This ended up getting solved by the built-in IIS HTTP redirect.  I had to select the check box to only redirect requests to content in this directory option for the redirect to work properly.

Revisiting the HTTP Redirect options ultimately got this to work for me
