Need to convert VB6 MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP process to C#.  I don't want to use MSXML2 so please don't provide solutions that add that DLL reference, I want the newest C# method that will replace the code below.  I have ran across links that discuss httpWebRequest & httpWebResponse but I don't know how to implement them to replace the code below.  Please help, thank you.


            
    Dim oXMLHTTP As MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP
    Dim strURL As String
    Dim strURLFull As String
            
    strURL = "/this_server/ServerManager.srv"
    strURLFull = "http://192.168.1.1"  & strURL
    strData = "do_reboot=yes&servermanager_return_page=%2Fadmin%2Findex.shtml%3Fsel%3Dserver&servermanager_do=set_variables"
    
    oXMLHTTP.Open "POST", strURLFull, True
    oXMLHTTP.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
    oXMLHTTP.setRequestHeader "Connection", "Keep-Alive"
    oXMLHTTP.send (strData)
    
    If oXMLHTTP.readyState <> 4 Then
            oXMLHTTP.waitForResponse 3
    End If

you can try use System.Net.WebRequest class to do the same thing.

WebRequest Class
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.net.webrequest(v=vs.110).aspx

quick try:
using System.Net;
using System.IO;
using System.Text;
....
String response = String.Empty;
String URL = "http://192.168.1.1/this_server/ServerManager.srv";
String data = "do_reboot=yes&servermanager_return_page=%2Fadmin%2Findex.shtml%3Fsel%3Dserver&servermanager_do=set_variables";

                using (MemoryStream mem = new MemoryStream())
                {
                    WebRequest req = WebRequest.Create(URL);
                    req.Method = "POST";
                    req.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded";
                    req.Headers.Add("Connection", "Keep-Alive");
                    req.Timeout = 100000;

                    UTF8Encoding encoder = new UTF8Encoding();
                    byte[] postBytes = encoder.GetBytes(data);
                    req.ContentLength = postBytes.Length;

                   using (Stream requestDataStream = req.GetRequestStream())
                    {
                        requestDataStream.Write(postBytes, 0, postBytes.Length);
                        requestDataStream.Close();
                        using (HttpWebResponse resp = req.GetResponse() as HttpWebResponse)
                        {
                            using (StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(resp.GetResponseStream()))
                            {
                                response = sr.ReadToEnd();
                                sr.Close();
                            }
                            resp.Close();
                        }
                        requestDataStream.Close();
                    }
                                     
                }

Similarly achievable using System.Net.HttpWebRequest class
