How to process .htm files as ASP?

Is there a mod rewrite equivalent for IIS?

I have a website with static html pages. Now I want to add some dynamic content and add some server side scripting. The problem is that I can rename the pages to .asp as this would break the the incomming links to my site and search engine listings. If this was a linux server I could have used mod rewrite or enabled php for .htm files. How can I achieve this on a Windows 2003 server with IIS?

In IIS Properties for the site Home Directory - hit the configuration button - this shows you the App Mappings, set up a mapping for .htm to the ASP DLL.

Thanks for the suggestion. But this is a shared hosting account and I don't have access to those settings.

Your host might let you do that. I believe that Mapping is relative to the site via the site properties not the collection of sites.

If the host won't allow mapping, see if they will allow a custom mime type. If so, you can set the mime type of .html to text/asp.

Thanks guys! I asked my website hosts and they gladly mapped .htm files to ASP. Problem solved!
