HTTP POST returns "303 See Other"

An HTTP server may return a 303 status code after receiving a POST, HEAD, or OPTIONS request. This indicates that the client should make another GET request to the resource returned in the Location header of the response. A basic example in C# showing how to do this is below.

Http client = new Http(); try { client.Post(""); } catch (IPWorksHttpException ex) { if (ex.Code == 151) // 151 means there was an error in the HTTP response. { if (client.StatusLine.Contains("303")) // 303 is the HTTP response error. { foreach(Header header in client.ParsedHeaders) { if(header.Field.ToLower() == "location") // Location has the URL to GET next. { client.Get(header.Value); } } } } }
