Output Streamreader

I have an HTTP POST  using
 Dim myHttpWebRequest As HttpWebRequest = CType(WebRequest.Create(stUrl), HttpWebRequest)

After posting the WebRequest

I have this
Dim streamResponse As Stream = myHttpWebResponse.GetResponseStream()
Dim streamRead As New StreamReader(streamResponse)

How do I gkeep my connection open and just receive Debug.Writeline everything that comes through...never closing the connection?

I can receive the first "chunk" no problem using the following code...but it will exit after the first chunk
Dim streamResponse As Stream = myHttpWebResponse.GetResponseStream()
        Dim streamRead As New StreamReader(streamResponse)
        Dim readBuff(12560) As [Char]
        Dim count As Integer = streamRead.Read(readBuff, 0, 12560)

        Debug.WriteLine(count)
        Debug.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "The contents of the HTML page are :  ")
        If count = 0 Then
            GoTo TheStart
        Else
            While count > 0
                Dim outputData As New [String](readBuff, 0, count)
                Debug.WriteLine(outputData)
                count = streamRead.Read(readBuff, 0, 12560)
            End While
        End If

Set the KeepAlive property of request to true and then call Read method of ReponseStream in a loop.

CodeCruiser,
  I have the KeepAlive set to true already.

How do I do the loop on the response stream?
Doesn't it require a buffer?

CodeCruiser...

Added this...

While streamResponse.CanRead

And refreshed the buffer inside each cycle on the output

THANKS!!!!

Man...I tell you what.

I went bin circles for a while.  Thanks...You know how it is when you're too close to something

Fresh eyes are needed.
