IIS and Tomcat on two different machines

Hi all
I have a problem configuring a simple redirect from IIS 5.1 to tomcat 4.1.27. IIS and Tomcat are not on the same Server because IIS is on a Windows enviroment and Tomcat is on a Red Hat Linux environment. All the docs i found are based on a configuration that expects both IIS and tomcat on the same machine. I need to know if it's possible this type of redirection and where i can find some useful docs.
Thank you in advice.
PS sorry for my bad english....

If you are talking about a true redirect - ie
it does not matter where somenewURL resides because the client will generate a new request for it. See the javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse javadocs.
