Adding external links to menus

I’d like to add some external links to the “Tools” menu for apps we use
to reset passwords, manage user and group id’s etc. How do I link
externally? When I modify the local Tools/Elements/Tabs file to point
to the pages I end up with links that are relative.
For example:
http://rt.server.host.com/https://server2.host.com/cgi-bin/reset.cgi

my $tabs = { A => { title => loc(‘Password Reset’),
path =>
https://server2.host.com/cgi-bin/reset.cgi’,
},
B => { ‘title’ => loc(‘Offline’),
path => ‘Tools/Offline.html’,
},
};

This is with RT 3.4.2

I know I’m digging up an old one, but I’ve finally updated to 3.6.1 from
3.4.2 and I’m still not able to add external links to Tabs. Jesse said
he thought this was fixed, but it doesn’t seem to be working for me.
Any further suggestions. I’m trying to Add them to The Tools Element
Tab.
