How to fix / Resolve WordPress Blog /comments/feed/ redirect loop

I have recently figured out that accessing http://www.pc-freak.net/blog/comments/feed/ would end up in a Redirect Loop I’m using feedburner to manage my blog feeds so I assume this redirect loop is probably caused by the use of feedburner

Since this kind of redirect loop is definitely not professional and has a negative influence on search engine indexing (the SEO), I have playeda bit until I finally found a way to resolve the /comments/feed/ redirect loop.
In order to resolve the redirect loop issue it appeared to be really easy.

To fix the issue Navigate to:

Tools -> Redirection

Therein add a Source URL to redirect to a Target URL:
For instance:

Source URL: http://www.pc-freak.net/blog/comments/feed/

Target URL: http://www.pc-freak.net/blog/feed/

Press the Add Redirection button to confirm the redirection.
That’s all your problems with feeds redirect loop while the /comments/feed/ url is accessed should be resolved.

    My version of WordPress (3.0.1) does not have Redirection as an option under the Tools menu.

    Good post right here but as one commenter points out, what if the WordPress version I’m using does not have the redirect option in the tools menu? How do I go about it?
