Have you looked at the HttpWebRequest/HttpWebResponse classes? They
will allow you to simulate making a request to an HTTP server and getting
the response back. You can use a tool like Fiddler to see how your browser
would send a request, and then duplicate it with the classes mentioned.

Why? Do your users fill out partial amounts of data on the form and then let
your program do the rest? Because if the work is 100% performed by your
program, who cares HOW it does it? The only other thing I can think of is
that you need your users to see the RESULTS of the post.
