file in place with just a single line in it:  "/apps/cepv/website/=/website/" and reset IIS.
It is not working but in the debug log I never see any reference to using the rewrite file.

the JSP page from  http://tomcat.company.com/website/myfile.jsp . That appears to be working
just fine. But we actually need to have a different IIS URL. What we are trying to figure
out is if we can configure it so that http://iis.company.com/apps/cepv/website/myfile.jsp
will redirect and serve the JSP content at http://tomcat.company.com/website/myfile.jsp. The
path on the IIS server is has two extra levels (/apps/cepv) in the URL path and does not match
the path on the tomcat server where the JSP content is. We have to have those two extra levels
in the IIS URL path for other technical reasons and we cannot match or include those two extra
levels on the tomcat side.

Melinda,
in addition to what Rainer writes above, and if you determine later that you need more
powerful URL-rewriting capabilities under IIS later, have a look at :
http://www.helicontech.com/isapi_rewrite/

Also, on this list, try to not "top-post" your reponses, it makes it more difficult for
everyone to follow the conversation (scrolling up and down etc..)
