We are moving our sites to IIS6 from IIS 5.
Earlier one of the header in IIS 5 is www.example.com/t
and now when i try to add a header in IIS 6 , it is not accepting special chars.

How can this issue be resolved

Are you trying to add a sub-directory as a Host Header? or have I misunderstood?

Yes one of the sites is promoted as www.example.com/t and it worked fine in windows 2000/IIS 5 but in Windows 2003/IIS 6 , it shows as an invalid entry.

Any other workaround for this

Can you create a new website with the host header www.example.com and then create a new folder within it called 't'?

(If necessary you can mark the new folder as an application)

I'm not sure, it's been a long time since I last used IIS 5. What exactly do you want to run in the Application?

I would just give it a try, I'm pretty sure it will work fine.
