I just don't see how CHTTPConnection::OpenRequest()  works with HTTP_VERB_POST  :

How do I send parameters to the server ?
How do I retreive the result ?

Thanks for your help.

Call OpenRequest() to open a request.  This gets you a pointer to a CHttpFile object, which you'll need to Close() and then delete when you're done.

On that CHttpFile object, call AddHeaders() if you want to send some HTTP headers.

Call SendRequest() on the CHttpFile object to actually send it off to the server.  You should supply your POST data to SendRequest() using the lpOptional and dwOptionalLen parameters.  If you want, you can use the pstrHeaders and dwHeadersLen parameters to supply your headers instead of calling AddHeaders().

Now that SendRequest() has returned, you're ready to start reading the response to your request.  Call QueryInfoStatusCode() on your CHttpFile to see what status code the server returned.  Call ReadString() on your CHttpFile to get string data, or call Read() to get binary data.
