Using HTTP Handler to redirect users of ASPX page to ASP url RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    for an existing project in Prod environment which has a classic asp page, the page needs to be re-written using ASP.NET Webforms. so, i have created a new project with a .ASPX page, re-written successfully. now, the project with classic ASP page is in Prod environment. end-users do not have the ability to change the URL to .aspx. So, for the new project, we are using a http handler to redirect control to new .aspx page when the end-user makes a call to .asp page. but this is not working. when the end user makes a call for classic ASP page, the response is a blank page. the test environment is IIS server 8 on Windows server 2012. we have created a handler in .cs file as class library and referenced it in the web config. and also, when we make a call to classic asp page , the page will not be there in the new project, but the url (url will be pointing to .asp page) should go to the handler and call the new .aspx page.

    could any one please let me know where i am going wrong.

    if any more information required, let me know. 

    using http handler approach is mandatory for accomplishing this.

    please help / guide.
