How to send HTTPWebRequest in asynchronous mode

Hi Experts;
Below is my VB.net routine to send an HTTPWebRequest.  It is working perfectly as is, but I'd like the transmission to be asynchronous.
I'd like the simplest method to do this. The receiving url doesn't return any response.

Thanks

Public Sub SendMessage(strXMLIN As String, sDigSigIN As String, strURLIN As String)

        Dim req As HttpWebRequest = DirectCast(WebRequest.Create(strURLIN), HttpWebRequest)
        Dim encoding As New UTF8Encoding()
        Dim data As Byte() = encoding.GetBytes(strXMLIN)


        req = DirectCast(WebRequest.Create(strURLIN), HttpWebRequest)

        req.Method = "POST"
        req.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
        req.ContentLength = data.Length
        req.ProtocolVersion = System.Net.HttpVersion.Version10
        req.Connection = False
        req.Headers.Set("hash", sDigSigIN)

        Dim strm As Stream = req.GetRequestStream()

        strm.Write(data, 0, data.Length)
        strm.Close()

        Dim response As HttpWebResponse = DirectCast(req.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)

        response.Close()

    End Sub

This post should help you out. It uses the BeginGetResponse and EndGetResponse.

If you're using .NET 4.5 you could use the HttpClient class which has a simpler async model built into it.

Use HttpWebRequest.BeginGetResponse()

HttpWebRequest webRequest;

void StartWebRequest()
{
    webRequest.BeginGetResponse(new AsyncCallback(FinishWebRequest), null);
}

void FinishWebRequest(IAsyncResult result)
{
    webRequest.EndGetResponse(result);
}
