Gravitational redshift formula

Hi,

I am looking for the formula that describes the gravitational redshift as

What I find on the net is http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=gravitational+redshift+from+r1+to+r2" the redshift factor for radius2 being infinity. I don't see how I easily compute a 2nd frequency from a first and from a delta distance.

Anyone know the formula?
