Main Page Url Rewrite

we have a confluence that is access by the url

I have set the start page in configuration to the News page of Intranet space, thus as soon as user go to,com he/she is redirected to

I need a simple url rewrite, so the user will see in the address bar just but the content should be from INTRANET/News... so I need rewrite, not redirect - any Ideas

I've tried tweek urlrewrite.xml (with the plugin installed):



<to type="redirect">/display/INTRANET/News</to>






However it throws exception:
java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: 3
at java.lang.String.charAt(
P.S. I'm testing on test machine (on live I have "port forwarding" so it is public through the IIS)

I think I have a loop:

1. redirects to

2. in preferences I set homepage to be /INTRANET/News so it is redirected there

3. And what is weird, my outbound rule is treat like redirect to and we have a loop

P.S. I'm already using tuckey dlls for that
