Change default to a website subfolder in iis7

We are looking to host a wordpress intranet site on our windows 2008r2 server with iis7. I have wordpress installed and working in the following path: C:\inetpub\wwwroot\bconnect. When the user types in the full url (http:\\servername\bconnect) the site works fine. However, if the user types (http:\\servername) it goes to the default IIS splash page. What is the best way to have it redirect to the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\bconnect subdirectory. See the picture below.

Hi

Easiest way is editing the index.html in wwwroot replacing content with this:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" />
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=http:\\servername\bconnect" />
<title></title>

</head>
<body>
