Heyas,

When a try to access a particular website on an IIS Server, I get the following error 404 - File or directory not found.

See the attached file.  The highlighted URL is what I type in and when press enter it automatically redirects to  http://uch-webapp-p001.uhc.uc.com.au:8090/Help

How can I stop this from occurring?

Thank you.

in your IIS, check the Error Pages configuration if it redirects to any page?

I may be reading this wrong, but it seems like this is behaving correctly, that url does not exist or is not reachable, so you are redirected to the help page.

Are you wanting help with solving what page gets served up when IIS can't find something (404) or help with getting the right document to show up at that URL?

Hi Ben,

I would like the right document to show up at that URL. I have checked the virtual directory path and the path definitely exists.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

do you set any default document for virtual directory TopCat_P ?
