Default Redirecting to ASPX from ASP


While I'm an ASPX beginner, I've developed and maintained an ASP 3.0 app. So I wanted to try redirection to ASPX from ASP.

The client-side one via Response.Redirect looks OK. However, Server.Transfer fails:
<%@ Language=VBScript %>
Dim url
Server.Transfer url

The error message is "Invalid @ Command directive" that refers to the first line in default.aspx:
<%@ Page language="c#" Codebehind="default.aspx.cs" AutoEventWireup="false" Inherits="weblog._default" %>

Does it mean that the server-side redirection can't be used here or some special configuration is needed?

This is my self-response:
The "Microsoft .NET/COM Migration and Interoperability" article found on MSDN reads:

"You cannot use Server.Transfer and Server.Execute between ASP and ASP .NET pages. For interactions between the two environments, use Response.Redirect instead."

Send a message via ICQ to NotNowJohn

The reason why is that ASP page was interpreted by IIS while ASPX page is executed by aspnet_wp.exe process. These process are absolutely isolated and cannot share info.

...but the Soon is eclipsed by the Moon
