HTTP authentication through wininet sdk calls

I am writing a program to obtain authentication from a perticular website through http protocol, and the server cgi-script is expecting some name value pairs as input, so how to pass this info from my application? and how to invoke that server cgi program?

The User and Password are send to web server by InternetConnect function like this:
hConnect:=InternetConnect(hHttpSession,
            'www.webserv.ext',
   1-->     INTERNET_DEFAULT_HTTPS_PORT,
   2-->     'USERID',
   3-->     'PASSWORD',
            INTERNET_SERVICE_HTTP,
            0,
            0);
 2 is your User Id, 3 is the password. Note:
 1 specify that the connection is made through the SSL, if the connection is normal you must use:
 INTERNET_DEFAULT_HTTP_PORT
