How manage HTTP Error 404.13 during File Upload

Hello Experts,
I created  an ASP.NET application that use FileUpload control.
I fixed maximun dimension of upload to 20Mb and everything work well.

If the user try to upload a file more than 20Mb correctly appears a WEB Page that show the HTTP Error 401.13.

I would like capture the error and redirect the browser to my customized web page.
I have tried to capture the error in page_error event, in global.asax Application_error, forcing the redirect using  Response.Redirect() or Server.Execute() but  they seem to be ignored and the standar Error page continues to appear.

Someone may suggest me how to manage the correct error catch and redirect?

You ll have to work on the HttpApplication.EndRequest of your exception handler and check the response status code (401.13 in your case) and then take the necessary decisions (redirect to a custom error page for instance). You might also want to check for the request's URL to make sure you are handling the FTP file size problem.
