Send data to http

I am using the Microsoft Internet Transfer Control, trying to send data to an http server like you would if you had typed it into a browser (i.e. ConfigureForm.Inet1.URL = " test & chr$(38) &"). However, I have only used the control for ftp transfers. How would I use it to do something like sending data to an http server like the above?

Here is the code I already have...
Inet1.URL = " test & chr$(38) &"

        Loop Until Not Inet1.StillExecuting
close the connection.    ConfigureForm.Inet1.Execute , "CLOSE"
