Hi,

I need to be able to post some data using and HTTP request to an SMS gateway.  How do I do this in .Net?  I have found the same old sample on 10000s of sites where you can grab and display a web site - but thats not what I need.

An example of the request that needs to be sent:

--------------------------------------------------

POST /SOMESPECIFIEDDIR.sms HTTP/1.1
HOST: the.url.com
CONTENT-LENGTH: CONTENTLENGTH

XmlMsg=ENCODEDDATA

--------------------------------------------------

I'm guessing this is a simple job as its simple enough in PHP.



PS here's that same old sample I keep finding.
------------------------------------------------------
WebRequest smsRequest = HttpWebRequest.Create(uri);
smsRequest.Method = "POST";
                  
WebResponse smsResponse = smsRequest.GetResponse();
StreamReader smsStream = new System.IO.StreamReader(smsResponse.GetResponseStream());
                  
return smsStream.ReadToEnd();

Stream requestStream = smsRequest.GetRequestStream();
StreamWriter requestWriter = new StreamWriter(requestStream, Encoding.UTF8 /* or whatever you need */);
requestWriter.WriteLine("XmlMsg=ENCODEDDATA"); // this is sent as POST data

or if it's in the Header:

smsRequest.Headers.Add("XmlMsg=ENCODEDDATA"); // this is sent in the header
