I need to change domain names and want to do a whole name redirect with a web.config file. How do I do that.

I need http://www.olddomain.com/products.asp?id=1 to redirect to http://www.newdomain.com/products.asp?id-1

So I need to rewrite the complete url incliding parameters.

in IIS7+, it's better to do it in the rewrite module:

for iis6 and below, a third party (free) tool will work best:

Web.config files do not exist in the classic ASP language. They are part of ASP.net. As Big Daddy stated above, this is better done from the server side. If your site is on IIS 6 or less, you can do it from the site properties.
