RE: [Rails] HTTP POSTs

What I'm trying to do is use a def function in one of my
application controllers to send a post on to another URI
(using the http POST
method) that is not on my server.

You're going to want to look at the net/http and/or mechanize libraries
for that.

I also tried a redirect, but it seems this method only wants
to initiate http GET actions.

Do you mean you want your response to the originating client to cause it
to issue a POST request to an arbitrary URL? You can't do that. You can
have the rails app issue a POST request, but you can't force the
originating client to do so.
