How do I relay an HTTPWebResponse?

        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("");

            string postData = this.Request.Form.ToString();
            byte[] data = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(postData);

            request.Method = "POST";
            request.ContentType = this.Request.ContentType;
            request.ContentLength = data.Length;
            request.UserAgent = this.Request.UserAgent;

            using (Stream stream = request.GetRequestStream())
                stream.Write(data, 0, data.Length);

            // ??? How do I do this...
            // this.Response = request.GetResponse();

I'm just missing that last part. The code that is commented doesn't compile because I can't set this.Response to anything but that's essentially what I'm trying to do.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You cannot set the Response property. Set the Response's properties instead.
