Use of 301 redirects problematic with some servers?

Nice thread over at HighRankings Forum about problems a member is having instituting a 301 redirect. This is a hot topic right now, since so many people are becoming aware of using a 301 redirect to avoid duplicate content issues, dynamic content issues, and canonical problems, to name a few.

"Just setting up a 301 redirect" is not as simple as it may sound. Can this process be easily accomplished using any server framework? Apparently not, according to one poster:

...asked a hosting company if they could turn on ASP processing for HTML pages. Yes, that's possible, but no, they'd rather not because it creates a security problem. Am I going to take that risk, against advice, and risk hosing the client's server...

See the thread at HighRankings Forum

and a topical thread at Search Engine Watch Forums

and a nice intro found at Cre8asite Forums.
