Our site is hosted on IIS 6, and I need the url to be redirected or rewritten or whatever will change it to my developers string, and for https.

I need http://example.com to end up as https://example.com/something.aspx?logintype=iuser

I tried redirect, but didn't seem to work. I google rewrite filters, and everyone seems to be doing something different. Is there a MS supported method rather than third party? How to the experts handle this? Thanks

When you said you tried redirect, was it the steps in the following KB you followed?

Is it Server 2003 or 2003 R2 you are using?

I'll have a quick look at work tomorrow on a basic html page if I get time.

I found a resource who created the following html file, set it as the default document for the site to point to this file and it works great. So simple!

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=https://example.com/something.aspx?logintype=iuser">
