Hello

I'm trying to use LinkFreeze to rewrite an URL.
The problem I have is, that some of the URIs have umlauts (oau) in them. It looks like LinkFreeze doesn't like them at all! The links work fine with LinkFreeze disabled, but I get a 404 only on these links with LinkFreeze enabled.
Any ideas, suggestions?
thats what a link looks like with LinkFreeze active:

thanks in advance

First of all I need to know what version of LinkFreeze you are using? Please upgrade to the current version available from our web site for further investigations. Just run new installation file and it will upgrade everything automatically.

Aha.. I had the same trouble...
U have to do something in u'r asp||aspx like this:
  stFileName = Replace(stFileName, "%C3%A4","a")
  stFileName = Replace(stFileName, "%C3%84","A")
  stFileName = Replace(stFileName, "%C3%BC","u")
  stFileName = Replace(stFileName, "%C3%9C","U")
  stFileName = Replace(stFileName, "%C3%B6","o")
  stFileName = Replace(stFileName, "%C3%96","O")
  stFileName = Replace(stFileName, "%C3%9","?")

This is normal. Non ANSI characters cannot be used in URLs. You need to encode all illegal characters using URLEncode function in ASP.
