We have a website that is built with .NET and the pages are dynamically built using information for a custom SQL Server database. All works, except now I need to produce SEF/clean URLs. We have some experience with a product called IIS Mod Rewrite on other client installations not hosted with NS and it works great.

I called NS support for some help finding a solution for the site hosted with NS and the answer was that this is beyond the support they offer. I see posts about SEF URLS if you are using one of the open source content managers they offer but, not much else.

Can anyone provide some information? This doesn't seem like an unreasonable topic.

Rewrites are only possible if you are on a Windows 2008 server (main directiry will be /www instead of /htdocs). They are configured through web.config. One of your hosting packages is on 2008, but the other is on an older Windows 2003 server. If you need to move to 2008, you would need to purchase a new package.

Thank you for your reply. I am talking about the one on Windows 2008 (www directory).

Is there an article or link on the web.config settings I can use? Is this the MS URL Rewrite for IIS7?

I believe so, but I have never configured rewrites on Windows. I have only seen the ones automatically set up by automatic installs of dotnetnuke and such.
