Why isn't this script working:

print "Location: http://.../danke.asp\n\n";

The headers returned are:

HTTP/1.0 200 OK
Location: http://.../danke.asp

You need to use:

print "HTTP 301 Redirect\n\n";
print "Location: http://.../danke.asp";

Thanks.
Easy, although it has to be:

print "HTTP 301 Redirect\n";
print "Location: http://.../danke.asp";

I just thought one could not add a header, when it was set - as in ASP.

Many CGIs return a Redirect header. Some also return 200 OK, 401 Access Forbidden, and 404 Not Found.
