Debian 4.0 stable is known as 'Etch', which is what I'm using on my desktop.
I have version 5.2.0 of echoping on that system, not version 6.

I'm not sure that you understood my suggestion.  My suggestion was to
ask for a different URL, one which would give you a 301 response, not
a 4xx response.

You could try

man echoping

to see if the -R flag is supported.

Here is the output of a couple of echoping commands on my desktop machine:

tornado:~$ >>> echoping -R -v -h /smokeping oss.oetiker.ch
echoping: invalid option -- R
tornado:~$ >>> echoping -v -h /smokeping oss.oetiker.ch

This is echoping, version 5.2.0.

Don't change anything until you understand what you're doing.
