To capture a redirect response header, you can use a tool like cURL or a programming language such as Python. Here are the steps to capture the redirect response header using cURL:

  1. Install cURL if you don't have it installed already.
  2. Open a command prompt or terminal.
  3. Use the following command to make a request and capture the redirect response header:
1
curl -D - -L <URL>


Replace <URL> with the actual URL you want to make the request to.

  • The -D - option is used to display the response headers, including the redirect response header.
  • The -L option is used to follow redirects.
  1. Press Enter to execute the command and capture the redirect response header.


You will see the response headers, including the redirect response header, displayed in the command prompt or terminal window.


If you are using a programming language like Python, you can use libraries like requests or urllib to retrieve the redirect response header. Here's an example using the requests library:

1
2
3
4
5
6
import requests

response = requests.get('<URL>', allow_redirects=True)
redirect_headers = response.history[0].headers if response.history else response.headers

print(redirect_headers)


Replace <URL> with the actual URL you want to make the request to. The allow_redirects=True parameter allows requests to follow redirects. The example prints the redirect response headers to the console.
