I assume you just did this by telnetting to the port your server uis running on,
probably 80.

What you sent was an HTTP 0.9 request. Try issuing a 1.0 request instead:

GET /homepage/glim HTTP/1.0<return>

Then you will get back numeric error codes and other useful headers, which is
what your browser should use to detect that a redirect has ocurred so it goes
and fetches the new document.
