If I understand your statement correctly, you are able to do:
header('Location: http://website.nofun/redirect?Var1=$Var1&Var2=$Var2');
where Var1 and Var2 are your form variables

If not, sometimes non-alphanumeric characters can cause errors rectified by
header('Location: http://website.nofun/redirect?Var1="$Var1"&Var2="$Var2";');
$URLVar1 = urlencode($Var1);  $URLVar2 = urlencode($Var2);
header('Location: http://website.nofun/redirect?Var1=$URLVar1&Var2=$URLVar2');

If this didn't help, maybe you could send the entire redirect commands you
have tried.

Not clear what you are asking here. I hope Troy answered the question.

ditto Troy's suggestion, phpinfo() should help.
