Hi,

i am working on ASP.net 2.0 using c#

Response.Redirect() to new url on different domain is not working from global.ascx.

HttpContext.Current.Response.Redirect("http://www.mynewdomain/myfile.aspx", true) is not working from global.ascx.

But it works from any user control.

Please advise.

Regards,

Hi,
maybe a typo but do you mean global.asax?
In which event did you add your redirect code?
If you want to redirect any request to this web app to another url, then either use a web.config redirect or configure IIS to redirect.

Hi....

Replace Response.Redirect("~/Error.aspx"); with:

// You've handled the error, so clear it. Leaving the server in an error state can cause unintended side effects as the server continues its attempts to handle the error.
Server.ClearError();

// Possible that a partially rendered page has already been written to response buffer before encountering error, so clear it.
Response.Clear();

// Finally redirect, transfer, or render a error view
Response.Redirect("~/Error.aspx");
