Servlet Filter Redirection

I have a soap message (axis) coming into a server. Because I don't
want to handle certain types of requests, I have created a servlet
filter to do the checking for me and to route the request to a <different> physical server. When the servlet filter kicks off
all is good until I try to redirect the request to the third server.
The redirect does not work. Here is the code from my filter..

....
//I check the request for the condition that I'm looking for
// if the condition exists, then i want to redirect this request to
another server..

HttpServletResponse servResp = (HttpServletResponse)response;
servResp.sendRedirect("http://otherserver:8080");
return;
...

Any ideas??

Can you describe what does happen?
"does not work" can mean a lot of things.

It never forwards the request to the 2nd server. The filter responds with the regular output. There is no exception that is thrown..
