I will be moving a clients site to a host running a windows platform, does .htaccess work the same on Windows ?

probably a stupid question :)

Using Apache it does. Don't know what happens using IIS.

OK,

not such a simple question ;) or maybe it is :)

The host are using IIS 5, is there an equivalent to .htaccess ?? if not are there any techniques that can be used ??

Thanks in advance as always

.htaccess doesn't work on IIS servers. (at least I haven't been able to get it to work)

You would need to do security with ASP or other type of security.

An .htaccess is a configuration file used with an Apache server. IIS can do most of the same things that can be managed by an .htaccess but different techniques are used to accomplish them.

A common use of .htaccess is redirecting a visitor's page request to another page. As an example, this page [iisadministrator.com] describes some methods to redirect visitors on IIS.

What about denying access to certain IPs ?

How would I go about that ?

(I have told this client that it is a lot of trouble to move to a Windows platform (changing the shebang line ;)) but they have already paid for the hosting.

All Help Greatly Appreciated

on a windows platform you shouldn't have to replace the shebang line - Windows just ignores it anyway.
