I was just looking through some online docs and some nmap results. I've 
never seen a server that includes public or allow header(s) on a 
redirect response [maybe my experience is limited?]. It seems to me that the http-methods NSE should follow 
redirects (HTTP 301, 302, 303) in order to perform the necessary OPTIONS
 request on a page/resource that's providing a HTTP 200.

Ideally the redirect handling would work the same as the built-in
handling of the http.get and http.head methods. See this earlier
