  • Hi Singaravelu,

    Can you tell me what rewrite tool you are using?  Also, send the rules.

    Will you capture a network trace using Edge’s debugger?  F12 and then go to the “Network” tab?  I would like to see the original page request and response headers.

    Appreciate the help,

    Steve

  • Hi Steven,

    Thanks for your immediate response.
    I’m using Microsoft URL Rewrite Module 2.0 for IIS (x64) to rewrite the URL.
    Its just shorten the URL and change the URL string based on the Page Language(Dutch/French).

    My actual problem is when browser encoding the diacritics characters in the URL string.
    In my URL I have diacritic character “ë” which encodes as below.
    “ë”

    This diacritic character “ë” is in 2 places, since the url length is very long.

    Its working in all other browsers like Chrome, Firefox, etc.

    I have attached the screenshot of network trace.

    Kindly let me know any feasible solution for this.

    Thanks,
