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").

clicking the button triggers a JavaScript function that calls form.submit
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 ?
