IIS 6: Custom Caching Headers

hankknight asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I want all images in a specific directory to be cached until 2020.  

I want these headers to be sent:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK 
X-Powered-By: XYZ Server 
Cache-Control: public 
Expires: Sun, 29 Mar 2020 00:00:00 GMT 
Content-Disposition: inline; 

Open in new window

I do NOT want these headers to be sent at all, but if the
must be sent, they must be blank:

Open in new window

This can be done with Apache using the following code.   Can it be done with IIS 6?

### .htaccess code for Apache --- Needs to be translated to work with Microsoft-IIS/6.0

<FilesMatch "\.(jpg|jpeg|png|gif|bmp)$">
Header unset ETag
FileETag None
Header set Cache-Control "public"
Header set Expires "Sun, 29 Mar 2020 00:00:00 GMT"
Header unset Last-Modified

Open in new window
