Hi all,

This might be a simple one, but I am not familiar how to accomplish this in IIS. I want to accept all incoming requests for a site, say the following...

http://thesitesOldName.domain.local
http://thesitesOldName.domain.local/someFolder/somePage
http://thesitesOldName.domain.local/someOtherFolder/pageThatDoesntExistAnyMore.action?pageId=1234567

So I'd like these different types of URLs all to somehow be caught by IIS and just forward the URL to a new root page like default.aspx and then I'll mince it up and forward to the page of my choosing later. But I don't want to put subfolders with catch all pages since I don't know the list of all the subfolders. The old site URLs are going to be forwarded to this IIS temp server to handle redirection with a nice little 5 second notice to users. Otherwise we'd just handle it on the load balancer/firewall.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Greg
