I've been trying to setup up url redirects in a clean install of DNN evoq content basic.  I'm using the IIS url rewrite module which I've downloaded and installed.  The following text is added to web.config when the rule is added using the IIS gui:



                <rule name="test redirect" patternSyntax="ExactMatch" stopProcessing="true">

                    <match url="" />

                    <action type="Redirect" url="" redirectType="Temporary" />




When I visit I get a 404 page (default 404 as this is a clean install).  Are there any issues with using the IIS url rewrite module with DNN or is my syntax wrong for the rule?  I've tried wildcards, regex, exact match but no joy.  In the IIS gui, I can test the pattern and it matches OK.

The IIS logs show a 404:

2015-11-25 12:01:12 GET /test - 80 - Mozilla/5.0+(Windows+NT+6.1;+WOW64)+AppleWebKit/537.36+(KHTML,+like+Gecko)+Chrome/46.0.2490.86+Safari/537.36 - 404 0 0 5390
