In my previous article we saw an approach to quickly save yourself from escalation but on a deep side in the server let’s see how to redirect the incoming URL to a new URL in SharePoint.
- Go to the server where your site is hosted
- Go to Start
- Click on Run
- Type inetmgr
- The following screen will open
- You can see Sites on the Connections tab
- Click on Sites
- You will be able to preview the entire Internet Manager. Under the IIS category we have the following two options:
- HTTP Redirect
- RL Rewrite
These two options will similarly redirect the sites to a new location. Let’s see how It can be done.
- HTTP Redirect
Here using this approach we just need to configure the fields below where, when a URL is called, the following URL configured will open.
You need to enter the URL in Redirect requests to this destination wnd check the box.
You also have two options to configure the redirect behaviour.
First you can redirect all requests to an exact destination, even to a relative one.
Secondly only redirect requests to content in this directory with the status codes Permanent, Temporary and Found.
- URL Rewrite
The next option we have is URL Rewrite where, when the URL is connected, if it matches the configured URL it will redirect to the new URL.
It helps you to configure them directly as well as using queries.
Let’s see how it is done.
- Click on the URL Write, you will see the sites under the connection made.
- Since I have only one site, click on the site’s folder.
- Here you can assign the URL you want to match when a user opens the response.
- If it matches the pattern, It will generate the action like for redirecting the action type will be redirect and it will redirect to the URL mentioned.
So this is how we have two options to redirect through the server connections.
