I have tried the GUI URL Rewrite in the IIS manager but the redirect is not working. This sort of rewrite is very easily done on Linux machines but is giving me serious trouble on IIS. I've also tried modifying the web.config file with no success.
I've attempted the method, rewrite rules and redirect rules and nothing is working.
Here are all the tutorials I've followed before asking this question: http://www.iis.net/learn/extensions/url-rewrite-module/creating-rewrite-rules-for-the-url-rewrite-module
