HTTP Web Response

I have a sub that is doing a HttpWebRequest

I am getting a response...

But I need to keep the connection open and receive a continuing response stream of xml

The "XML bursts" will come though every second or so

Example
I post this
<command>
   <phoneID> 123</phoneID>
</command>

I get back initially...
<Result xsi:type="org.m5.data.v2.cti.HostedConnectObject" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
   <csta:MonitorStartResponse>
       <csta:monitorCrossRefID>243</csta:monitorCrossRefID>
   </csta:MonitorStartResponse>
</Result>

and then in an ongoing "monitoring" I will get back every few seconds any phone call actions xml and if no calls on the phone...every 30 seconds
<Response>
   <monitoring>243</monitoring>
</Response>

My problem is that I'm getting back the initial response...and then the thread closes

How do I keep this response "stream???" open and close ONLY on response being idle for 2 minutes?

use BeginGetRequestStream which uses asynchronous request.
