Hi

I downloaded IIRF today and have searched the package high and low for IIRFGlobal.ini, it simply isn't there?!

Does anyone know where I can get it from?

Thanks,

yes:  you write them yourself.

they are configuration files.  It is where you specify how you want the filter to work.

There are lots of examples in the doc.

Ah!

Sorry for being retarded, I assumed IirfGlobal.ini would come with some defaults :)

Thanks!

Check the docs - if you don't supply iirfglobal.ini, it *does* default all the options that you could set there.

The doc is excellent reading!!

Reading the docs is what confused me.

Having step 2 as "Place the settings file (IirfGlobal.ini), in the same directory as the DLL file. The filter will look for its global settings in that file. You will configure site-specific settings later, in a separate ini file. For more information see the Configuring IIRF topic." isn't exactly helpful when that file isn't provided, imo.

Thanks :)

I'm definitely recommending this on my blog and to my clients, I've only just found this out after several months of searching for a reliable / free IIS6 Rewrite Filter. This is brilliant, thanks.

Which search engine do you use?  It's the first hit on the one I use :

I never actually searched for "Rewrite Filter", more like Rewrite Module - Always been in the presence of Linux/Apache guys at the time I've been looking for it.. IIS7's URL Rewriting does fine for me, but most of my clients arn't upgrading yet.

I just re-read the doc pertaining to the ini files, and I agree, it's pretty badly written.  I'm fixing that now.
