after I installed IIRF i can not open my website "Service is not avaiable".
First i have an virtual server with microsoft windows 2003 64 bit, plesk and iis6 (hosteurope).
as described in the tutoriall for 2.1 under iis6..
Now i wrote my steps maybe anyone can say me where my mistakes are ..
I copied the downloadet files from the BIN folder to C:\Program Files\Ionic Shade\IIRF 2.1
Then i created the "IirfGlobal.ini" in the same folder (where the dll "IIRF.dll" is) C:\Program Files\Ionic Shade\IIRF 2.1 ...
and i give theeese two files READ permissions (DLL, and ini file)..
Then (Step4) i browsed to the IirfGlobal.ini file and to the IIRF.dll and specified the
NETWORK SERVICE for the identity verify permissions.
(Yes everything was checked List folder / read data ..)
After that i moved to the ISS, right clicked "Web Sites" and addet the ISAPI Filter.
(I left out step 10 - it was optional.)
After that i checked the "Web Service Extensions" but i could not find "Ionic Rewriter", so i checked in IIS on "Web Sites" the ISAPI FILTER.
I think there is the problem, the Ionic Rewriter is red, priority unknown and status not loadet.
I wrote in the "IirfGlobal.ini"
But i think that is not the problem hmn I need only rewrite to use cooluri or realurl for my typo3 i think thats more comfortable..
If anyone could help me i would be very happy..

Check the Windows event log.
Also, see the page in the documentation called "verifying and troubleshooting installation"

I wrote with my Serverhoster ...
They said that the server use 64bit but the iis runs under 32bit ..
I think thats my problem.
now it works
the ISAPI Filter is now loadet under iis but if i look to the log files i have every few minutes this error message:
IIRF: event ID 3, IIRF:
Could not open ini file 'C:\Inetpub\vhosts\default\htdocs\Iirf.ini' (error: 2).
If i type "http://localhost/iirfStatus" i get this feedback:

Well, this error:
> IIRF: event ID 3, IIRF:
> Could not open ini file 'C:\Inetpub\vhosts\default\htdocs\Iirf.ini' (error: 2).
...says that IIRF could not open its ini file. Error 2 indicates the file does not exist, but you wouldn;t know that unless you were a programmer.
This set of messages:
> Ini file C:\Inetpub\vhosts\default\htdocs\Iirf.ini
> Ini file timestamp (file not found)
says the same thing, though, in English.
I think you need to provide an Iirf.ini file, with rules in it. This is explained in the IIRF documentation. I highly recommend reading it.
I had a similar problem. You have to look at your iirfStaus on the server. If your vdir .ini gets a Event ID 3, make sure you give the same permissions to your Iirf.ini that you gave to the IIRF.dll and IirfGolbal.ini.
