I have a site (.net) and want to configure URL rewriting, so that for desktop:

http://domain.com/category/content/23

rewrites to

/content.aspx?pageid=23

and for mobile it simply appends the subdomain: http://m.domain.com/category/content/23

All my mobile files are under a directory "mobile".

I have manged to sort out the desktop url rewriting, but can't get mobile one working. For desktop I have the following rule:

    <rule name="rewrite_rule">
              <match url="(\d*)/content/(\d*)" />
              <conditions>
                <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="domain\.com" />
              </conditions>
              <action type="Rewrite" url="content.aspx?pageid={R:2}" appendQueryString="true" />
    </rule>

and for mobile I have:

 

    <rule name="rewrite_rule2">
              <match url="/content/(\d*)" />
              <conditions>
                <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^m\.domain\.com" />
              </conditions>
              <action type="Rewrite" url="/mobile/content.aspx?pageid={R:1}" appendQueryString="true" />
     </rule>

but if I type in URL with mobile subdomain, it takes me to the desktop version, i.e. my desktop rule is fired instead of mobile one.

please help.

thanks

Try creating the subdomain separately and try 302 redirect with URL rewrite rule for mobile.
