I am attempting to setup a url redirect to point to an external page but am getting a 404.

but I am getting a 404. is this because the subsite/url doesn't currently exist on my SP site?

Ideally what I want to have happen is  this:

www.mydomain.com/vanityurllink

have it point to that external link.

how can I accomplish this?

perhaps - it's just that particular URL.

I created a subsite today but I don't even really want to do that. I just want to go directly to that URL to the external page.

I don't want it to effect anything else on the site which is why I'm hesitant to mess with iis.

I created the default page as a 'redirect page' on my publishing site but it did not redirect.
