Hi. I need to forward web site cep.gsehd.gwu.edu to www.cep-dc.org. That is, when someone points a browser at cep.gsehd.gwu.edu, she should be redirected to www.cep-dc.org.

www.cep-dc.org is located at IP 205.210.188.61. I have asked the owners of cep.gsehd.gwu.edu to edit the DNS zone file for cep.gsehd.gwu.edu, and set the A (Host) to point to IP 205.210.188.61.

That was accomplished yesterday. Now, when you point a browser at cep.gsehd.gwu.edu, you see the IIS 7.5 web server splash screen -- the splash screen of the default web site in IIS 7.5 on server 205.210.188.61.

What else do I need to do, in IIS 7.5 on server 205.210.188.61, to get the web site cep.gsehd.gwu.edu to redirect not just to the default web site, but specifically to www.cep-dc.org?

(The owners of cep.gsehd.gwu.edu are either unwilling or unable to set up, in IIS 7 on their server, a simple 301 redirect for cep.gsehd.gwu.edu to www.cep-dc.org.)

Thank you for any advice.

Eric
