Good luck… IIS6 is a nightmare for redirects. First, do you have admin access/remote desktop access to the machine? If you don’t, you might be screwed.
I’ve used IIRF (http://iirf.codeplex.com/) a few times and it works pretty well (and is very easy to install). In a nutshell, IIRF is like ModRewrite in Apache. The bummer is, you need install this on the server with an admin account.
Oops, sorry for the confusion. Do you have remote desktop access or physical access to the Monitor/Keyboard/Mouse connected to the server? If you only have FTP access (using Filezilla) there is not way to install any of the rewrite tools.
I need to know a little more about your server setup. If you could, walk me through how you tried to installed IIRF. I’m assuming you remote desktop to the server(remote desktop and FTP are not the same thing, FYI) and, on the server, you downloaded the IIRF installer and ran the program. Were there any errors while you were installing?
