Yes, well -

RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
RewriteMap mapfile txt:mapfile.txt
RewriteRule ^([^?/]+)\.aspx TestimonialfSurgeon.aspx?DocID=${mapfile:$1}

ok, and what does the IIRF logfile say? 

you need to turn on logging with RewriteLog and RewriteLogLevel.

This is described in the IIRF documentation.

Hi Cheeso,


i had set the log file as below  path

#set log directory
RewriteLogFile c:\inetpub\IIRF_logs\IIRF

And what does /iirfStatus indicate?

The Steps to do the basic "is it working?" troubleshooting and verification, like examining the logfile and the /iirfStatus url,  are covered in the IIRF documentation.
