Hi Experts!

I've Googled the hell out of this and am getting nowhere. I have created a website and need to get a custom 404 error page working.

I know how to do this so that it works for file requests. EG, if someone requests http://www.mywebsite.com/page.aspx and it doesn't exist, I can make it forward on to the 404 correctly using the web.config file.

However, if I request http://www.mywebsite.com/folder (IE, with no file extension so it's looking for a folder that does not exist), I get this bad boy:

ASP.Net 404 Error Page
I'd have thought I need to change something in IIS, but don't know where to start with that.

Any help much appreciated.

Bob

you might want to disable Directory browsing for your site. that would prevent accessing folders/directories directly.

click on edit feature settings and turn off detailed errors for local requests and custom error pages for remote requests and set it to custom error pages
