I will describe the current situation first
We have an A record on our server that directs all: sub.domain.com to an IP
on IP, I have an IIS7.5 on W2K8R2.
The default wwwroot folder is as such:
On my Default Web Site that is actually answering to a call to the IIS , I have a Default.htm page with the follwoing code:
<HTML> <HEAD> <TITLE>OptiTex maintenance page</TITLE> <meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=http://ws.optitex.com/OptiTexWebApplication/Pages/Homepage.aspx"> </HEAD> <BODY BGCOLOR="FFFFFF"> <CENTER><IMG SRC="LogoNew.gif" ALIGN="BOTTOM"> </CENTER> <HR> <a href="http://www.optitex.com">www.optitex.com</a><br><br> Thank you. <br> <HR> </BODY> </HTML>
this page is the REFRESH page I want to get rid off.
What that does, is show the short message of : Thank you. - and redirects the user an other WebApplication 'OptiTexWebApplication' and the actual page served is: /Pages/Homepage.aspx
- What I want is that this redirect/change will happen, without the popup that I currently see (it's a short 1 sec - but I think it doesn't have to happen)
- The next step is to allow only SSL access (but this is solved with URL rewrite)
