IIS 7 Url Rewriting & Windows Authentication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are trying to use IIS 7 URL Rewrite module to get rid of pages/default.aspx in sharepoint which uses Windows Authentication. But after setting a rule the web application keeps prompting for credentials. But sometimes hitting F5 returns the page content (but again sometimes).

    Failed request tracking on IIS says windows authentication module error. I have read in some blogs & forums that IIS 7 URL rewriting is not supported by SharePoint, but i have not read this in any of the Microsoft articles.

    Any ideas or alternative solutions would be appreciated.. thanks in advance.

    [Update 1] - Got mail from Premium support that 'URL Rewriting' is not supported by SharePoint in any versions. Any alternative solutions are welcome.
