in reply to Help needed on HTTP redirects

Untested, but something like this should be well enough:
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use CGI 'redirect'; use LWP::Simple 'head'; if(head('')) { print redirect(''); } else { print redirect('/404'); # already at siteA }
head should return true (and some info) only if the site asked is up and working. If it isn't enough, you might want to look at LWP head replacement, especially merlyn's answer.
