Click on hyperlink on different website

I am building a website to interface with our software. However it currently has a dreadful cloud based website that I need to utilize to submit information to our software.

I know I can use the POST in order to login to the site and hopefully fill in the blanks and submit it . However one issue I have.

When you login it gives you hyperlinks for different accounts that are available.

Is there a way to have my website click a hyperlink based on description and load the next page for me to POST data into the fields?

I am very curious some code samples will be nice as well.

WebsiteA(my website) -->logs into WebsiteB(other vendor)-->WebsiteA clicks hyperlink for property that has 2000 bob st. in its description.

WebsiteB opens the file and Website A POSTS data to that site.

Firstly I'm not a .NET programmer so I can't give you any definitive code samples but I can guide you through how you need to do this.

IMHO, the best way to do this is add a "middle man" on your server that takes requests from your clients on Website A and does the required actions on Website B and returns the results to Website A.

Due to security restrictions, your clients cannot access Website B from A directly and require this middle man (don't even go there with iframes).

The forms on Website B will have an associated URL that the data is posted to.  By opening your developer tools and having the Network tab open, you'll see what data is sent when submitting whatever form on Website B.

So now you have a URL and the required data that needs to be sent to website B to perform the required action.

On your server (Website A) you now send and receive data to those URLs and pass it back to your clients on A.  PHP uses CuRL to achieve this but I'm pretty sure .NET has inbuilt tools that can load / post data from external sites.

Your clients need only to fill out the minimum fields that in conjunction with other required data and sent onward to Website B and back again via your server (the middle man)
