I am trying to redirect the server to fetch a page using
"Location: URL" on a NT 4.0 machine. But this doesnt seem to work. Does the "Location: URL" header not work on Windows NT. If not, what are my other options?

I have just one line of code in the server side file.
It is
print "Location: cgi-bin/test.html\n\n";

The browser (navigator) returns complaining "document contains no data"

Shouldn't care about your operating system (although it could care about your browser or server, or other lines you may be printing with it)
What exactly are you printing?

Instead of printing a relative path,
you should print the entire path leading to your
html document. Here is an example:

print "Location: http://www.mit.edu/~user/cgi-bin/test.html\n\n";
