"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi, put this in HEAD section..

<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="0;url=test123.cgi">

It will automatically redirect anyone visiting test.html page to test123.cgi

If this is not what you want, please inform.
