..here's a piece of code I made that seems to work.
Imports System.Web

 Dim MyClient As New WebClient
 
       Dim ServerResponse as string = ""
        Dim WebRequestString As String = ""
        Dim   OutURL As String = "http://www.yourdomain.com/yourpostpage.php"

'Add some form values
MyClient.QueryString.Add("keyname", "keyvalue")

       Try
              MyClient.Headers.Add("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded")

              Dim bytResponse As Byte() = MyClient.UploadValues(OutURL, MyClient.QueryString)

              ServerResponse = System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetString(bytResponse)

        Catch ex As Exception
                                FinalResult = ex.Message
                                FailureTrackCount = FailureTrackCount + 1
        End Try
