Redirect requests to an IP to the FQDN

I am trying to redirect all requests from let's say http://10.11.12.13/* to http://www.example.com/*

I tried using the following code in my web.config file, but keep getting a "500 Internal Error":
	<system.webServer>
		<rewrite>
			<rules>
				<rule name="IP Redirect" stopProcessing="true">
					<match url="(.*)" />
						<conditions>
							<add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="11\.12\.13\.14" />
						</conditions>
						<action type="Redirect" url="http://www.example.com/{R:1}" />
				</rule>
			</rules>
		</rewrite>
	</system.webServer>

Open in new window




So, if I cannot get it to redirect through the web.config file, I thought it may be possible to do it through the .vb script pages, since there is only a couple pages due to security reasons that I need the redirect working for.


SO...Does anyone have an idea on how to better handle this so that when my website gets requested by an IP address that it automatically redirects to the domain name?

In your example the IP is different from the code that you have given.

Please do use Regex for validating IP Address http://www.tipsntracks.com/112/regular-expressions-ip-address-validation-with-net.html

The IP address is an example, and is not real... For reasons of anonymity, I do not want to state my actual domain or ip address.  But, sorry I got mixed up and did not use the same fake IP throughout the whole question.

This was completed using a combination of a couple of vb.net statements using elements like "HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.AbsoluteUri" with a couple if-then statements and a resulting "Response.Redirect" condition.
