The readme says:

IIRF does not do forward or reverse proxying, like Apache's
mod_proxy.

Unlike the combination of Apache's modrewrite and modproxy,
IIRF is a simple and basic rewriting filter. Once a request is
received within an IIS, IIRF can change the request to
"something else", but the request stays on the box, and within
the given IIS server on the box. Redirects can go off the box,
but they are not transparent - they are client-side redirects.
