Want to use .htaccess to:
1. redirect specific and mutiple ip adresses
2. from http://www.mysite.com
3 to http://www.subsite.mysite.com/newpage.php

Efforts with RewriteCond... end in failure

Could anyone please help?

Not sure but the following should rewrite a request with no URI (that is just plain /) from a host with the IP address of 123.45.67.8

RewriteCond   %{REQUEST_URI} ^\/
RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR}       123\.45\.67\.9
RewriteRule   /(.*) http://www.subsite.mysite.com/newpage.php

It MIGHT put you in a loop so be careful. : )

Sorry for the delay in replying to your suggestion; thank you for it. I have been away.

Access is certainly restricted but we get an Internal Server Error message. Any thoughts?

Not sure what you mean by "access is certainly restricted."

What type of error?

Do you happen to have PHP or some other service side scripting language installed?

1. that access is restricted to the site from that ip address

2. the message is "Internal Server Error"

3. no; the htaccess file is as recommended

Still not sure what you mean by restricted.  You wanted to redirect to a new URL.

Is the redirection working?

As for the Internal Server error, what messages are you seeing in Apache's access and error logs?
