url rewrites not working in codeigniter

I replaced an old minisite written in classic asp with a new one built on a codeigniter platform. When I tried to create 301 redirects in ii8 they weren't implemented and resulted in codeigniter 404 pages. As a workaround I just inserted an asp redirect into all the asp pages, which was kind of tedious, but it worked. I just wanted to know how this could be better accomplished either in codeigniter or by having codeigniter to recognize the url redirect rules. As an experiment I created some url redirects from asp to php pages, which worked so that's not the problem. I think it must have something to do with codeigniter routing.

or by having codeigniter to recognize the url redirect rules.
If the redirects are setup correctly to point to valid CI URL's then you should not have to do anything to CI. Sounds like your problem is in your redirect rules not resolving to valid CI urls.

It looks like you led me in the right direction. I think my rewrite rules were not clear and unnecessary. I added an httpRedirect to the web.config file for all those asp files and it works fine.
