I'm trying to send the following request to a server. How can I do this using C#? The server will be expecting this post, and it will then reply back with some information.

POST /bobl/bobl HTTP/1.1
Host: hostedconnect.m5net.com
Connection: keep-alive
Content-Type: text/plain
Transfer-Encoding: chunked

Is there any way to view the header that is being sent? I want to verify that something like the header below is actually being sent.

POST /bobl/bobl HTTP/1.1
Host: hostedconnect.m5net.com
Connection: keep-alive
Content-Type: text/plain
Transfer-Encoding: chunked

Nevermind, I figure out why our implementation wasn't working. Everytime we went to read the response it was always blank, we had to set HttpWebRequest.AllowReadStreamBuffering  to false.
