POSTing Data to another server

P: n/a
I am in a situation where I need to package some information from
Page1, submit it via POST to another server which will process the
information and then send the user to another page on my server

I have looked at HttpWebRequest (see code below) on numerous coding
websites but have not found a method that works. Does anyone have a
solution for this or has seen an example that works for this

Currently, I am using an HTML page that obviously goes away when it
performs the POST. I need the ASP.NET page to work the same way--send
the data and go away. The receiving server is configured to send data
back to a page on my server.

This is one very frustrating issue that I have with ASP.NET--the
postback architecture gets wrapped around itself for something like

private void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
string bname = tbName.Text;
string baddr1 = tbAddress.Text;
string bcity = tbCity.Text;
string bstate = ddlState.SelectedItem.Value;
string bzip = tbZip.Text;
string phone = tbPhone.Text;
string email = tbEMail.Text;
string cctype = ddlCCType.SelectedItem.Value;
string cardnumber = tbCCNumber.Text;
string expmonth = ddlExpMonth.SelectedItem.Value;
string expyear = ddlExpYear.SelectedItem.Value;
string subtotal = lblCost.Text.Substring(1);
string tax = lblTax.Text.Substring(1);
string chargetotal = lblTotal.Text.Substring(1);

string postData = "bname=" + Server.UrlEncode(bname);
postData += "&baddr1=" + Server.UrlEncode(baddr1);
postData += "&bcity=" + Server.UrlEncode(bcity);
postData += "&bzip=" + Server.UrlEncode(bzip);
postData += "&phone=" + Server.UrlEncode(phone);
postData += "&email=" + Server.UrlEncode(email);
postData += "&cctype=" + Server.UrlEncode(cctype);
postData += "&cardnumber=" + Server.UrlEncode(cardnumber);
postData += "&expmonth=" + Server.UrlEncode(expmonth);
postData += "&expyear=" + Server.UrlEncode(expyear);
postData += "&subtotal=" + Server.UrlEncode(subtotal);
postData += "&tax=" + Server.UrlEncode(tax);
postData += "&chargetotal=" +
postData += "&storename=XXXXXXXXXX";
postData += "&mode=payplus";
postData += "&txnorg=eci";
postData += "&bcountry=US";
postData += "&2000=submit";

HttpWebRequest postReq = (HttpWebRequest)
postReq.Method = "POST";
postReq.AllowAutoRedirect = false;
postReq.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-encoded";
postReq.ContentLength = postData.Length;

byte[] buffer = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(postData);
using (Stream reqst = postReq.GetRequestStream())
reqst.Write(buffer, 0, buffer.Length);
