IIS 7.5 08 R2 Redirect

Hi guys,

We have this site in our IIS www.longname.com. We have a new website in IIS www.short.com. We want to do a redirect from the www.longname.com to www.short.com.  We heard you can do that from URL Rewrite which seems complicated and HTTP Redirect doesnt seems to work.

Can you guys help me with this.

Why not simply publish www.longname.com as having the same IP address as www.short.com in DNS?
