Simulating HTTP Client using VB.Net TcpClient?

VB.Net Newbie here so excuse me if this has an obvious answer.

How can I simulate a HTTP Client using VB.Net TcpClient?

I need to be able to submit requests and handle responses from an existing IIS .Net ASPX Site.

Example code (or links to it) would be appreciated!
Thank you!

Why a TcpClient, and not an HttpWebRequest?

Hi Bob,
Thanks for the quick response.  I'm a newbie so I'm not familiar with

Does this mean there's a HttpWebResponse too?

HttpWebRequest.  Do you have a link to a decent example with Requests and Resonses?
