HttpWebRequest Form Authentication Not Getting Past Login Page

Hello,

I am trying to use the POST method with a HttpWebRequest object while passing in real login credentials and am failing to get past the login page. (The credentials down there are real, but not mine personally =D)

I got the same code to work for Totsy.com but cannot get it to work for Zulily.com.

Any help in getting past the login page so I can retrieve the after login page would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Mohammed
Dim strUrl As String = "https://www.zulily.com/index.php/customer/account/login/"

ServicePointManager.Expect100Continue = False
ServicePointManager.SecurityProtocol = SecurityProtocolType.Ssl3

Dim webRequest As HttpWebRequest
Dim responseReader As StreamReader
Dim responseData As String
Dim postData As String = "email=experttest@hotmail.com&pass=pass1234"
Dim cookies As CookieContainer = New CookieContainer()
Dim requestWriter As StreamWriter

'post form data to page
webRequest = HttpWebRequest.Create(strUrl)
webRequest.Method = WebRequestMethods.Http.Post
webRequest.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
webRequest.CookieContainer = cookies
webRequest.ContentLength = postData.Length

requestWriter = New StreamWriter(webRequest.GetRequestStream)
requestWriter.Write(postData)
requestWriter.Close()

'recieve cookie
webRequest.GetResponse().Close()

'now we send the cookie
webRequest = HttpWebRequest.Create("http://www.zulily.com/index.php/")
webRequest.CookieContainer = cookies
responseReader = New StreamReader(webRequest.GetResponse.GetResponseStream())
responseData = responseReader.ReadToEnd()
responseReader.Close()

SpillLabel.Text = Server.HtmlEncode(responseData)
