Subject Re: Logfile for isapi_redirector2.dll?

I believe that is the same thing I'm trying to do (did) with IIS and Tomcat.
I don't believe it is a bug. It is just the way the isapi_redirector.dll is
written. Windows registry settings specifies where _the_
file is located as well as where the is located.
Each IIS website is configured in IIS's Management Application to use the
ISAPI filter (isapi_redirector.dll) and a virtual directory is defined in
IIS as well under each web site to the directory where the
isapi_redirector.dll file is located. Since the mapping to webapps is
controlled by the file and only one can be specified
in the registry settings, there is no way in IIS or via the ISAPI filter to
control the access.

This must not be a common thing at all as you said because I also checked
three books on Tomcat. Professional Apache Tomcat was the closest to cover
this at all but none of them specifically addressed this configuration.
However, my customer wants to have one computer running IIS to be accessible
to the Internet. So, that is what I have make it work with this
