simulate post of .htm page to remotely hosted web-service
i'm communicating over vpn with a private web-server meant for
data-provision to intermediaries.
the web-server does not validate credentials. it just immediately returns
data in xml-doc format.
the only working tool i have is a html page (.HTM file) written by someone
(someone who is long gone). (it might be a java applet ... but i'm not sure
how to figure this out)
the page is very simple. just a <textarea> and a <input type=submit>
a long alphanumeric string is entered into the textbox
(that the string must with a "^" character -- a "full stop").
and posts the the data to a URL.
the xml-doc data returned to the browser is displayed in the <textarea>
"view source" on the IE 6 browser hosting the page reveals only a very
simple block of html
a <textarea> element is used for data-entry.
i can't disclose the actual url -- but its similar to
.... so apparently the web-server is hosting a .net web-service ...
i would like to simulate this data-retrieval process in .NET code ...
how to go about this ?
