use the web browser control: (Microsoft Internet Controls)

and do something like this:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
WebBrowser1.Navigate ("http://<url>")
While WebBrowser1.Busy
    DoEvents
Wend

'' obviously the "Form1" is name of form and "userName" is textbox for name and "userPass" is textbox for passwd
WebBrowser1.Document.Forms("Form1").Item("userName").Value = "<userName>"
WebBrowser1.Document.Forms("Form1").Item("userPass").Value = "<userPass>"
WebBrowser1.Document.Forms("Form1").Submit

MsgBox WebBrowser1.Document.body.innerHTML

End Sub
