C# - Using HttpWebRequest To POST To A Form On An Outside Server?

Jan 26, 2010

I am trying to simulate a POST to a form on an external server that does not require any authentication, and capture a sting containing the resulting page. This is what the form looks like:

<INPUT type="hidden" name="JSPName" value="GIN">


<INPUT type="text" name="Field1" size="30"
maxlength="60" class="txtNormal" value="">

This is what my code looks like:

ASCIIEncoding encoding = new ASCIIEncoding();
string postData = "Field1=VALUE1&JSPName=GIN";
byte[] data = encoding.GetBytes(postData);
// Prepare web request...
HttpWebRequest myRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("https://XXX/controller");
myRequest.Method = "POST";
myRequest.ContentType = "text/html";
myRequest.ContentLength = data.Length;
Stream newStream = myRequest.GetRequestStream();
// Send the data.
newStream.Write(data, 0, data.Length);
StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(newStream);
string text = reader.ReadToEnd();

Currently, the code returns "Stream was not readable".

C# - HttpWebRequest POST Adds A NULL Value To Form Variables

Jan 10, 2011

I am attempting to call a RESTful service using an HttpWebRequest object via POST. I am attempting to pass 1 variable with the Request body which contains a url encoded string. I see the request when it hits the server; however, it shows 2 form variables. The first is Form[null] and the second is my variable.I am attempting to locate the source of this NULL key; however, I cannot. Any ideas on how I may be able to remedy this since it's throwing issues when I attempt to use it with the Nancy web framework for .Net.

Win Form Application Freeze On HttpWebRequest File Post

Sep 3, 2010

I have an application that will upload files from my client to a web server using HttpWebRequest (with the function suggested here: [URL]

My problem is that when the file (about 10 mb in size) is being posted the whole application freezes (e.g. "application is not responding" when I try to move the window).

Do I need to put the uploading in a separate thread, or is there any other simple way solve this?

Jul 3, 2010

I have a web form on a web page like this:

<form method="post" action="http://poston.domain.com/" enctype="multipart/form-data"> <input type="hidden" name="function" value="somevalue"> <input type="text" name="username" value="somevalue2"> <input type="text" name="password" value="somevalue3"> <input type="file" name="picture"> <input type="text" name="pictto" value="0"> <input type="submit" value="Send"></form>

C# - Underlying Connection Closed On HttpWebRequest POST On Production Server?

Nov 23, 2010

I'm getting the "The underlying connection was closed: The connection was closed unexpectedly." error while trying to POST using the HttpWebRequest class on the production server, on my dev machine it works fine.

I originally tried using the WebClient class but I switched to the HttpWebRequest to try some of the suggestions I found while researching the issue (such as setting KeepAlive to false, PreAuthenticate true and ProtocolVersion to 1.0).

Since it's only happening on the production server, i'm guessing that it might have something to do with IIS.

Here's my code


If set the Target Framework (I used a new project for testing) to 2.0 (I didn't test every version of the framework) it works. I'm guessing that .net handles the security differently in .net 4.0.

POST Form Server-side - Redirect The User To This Blank Page?

Jun 11, 2010

Currently whenever I need to send a request to a payment-gateway, for example, I redirect my page to another page on my website which has a form with several hidden fields. I then pre-populate the values of these fields server-side, and specify in the body tag something like 'onload="form.submit();"'

However, I'm wondering, rather than redirecting to this page, is there anyway that all this data can be collected and POSTed to the payment-gateway server-side?This will cut out the need to redirect the user to this blank page, and make everything a bit more tidy.

File Upload With HttpWebRequest Doesn't Post The File

Jun 17, 2010

Here is my code to post the file. I use asp fileupload control to get the file stream.

HttpWebRequest requestToSender = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create [URL]
requestToSender.Method = "POST";
requestToSender.ContentType = "multipart/form-data";
requestToSender.KeepAlive = true;
requestToSender.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;
requestToSender.ContentLength = BtnUpload.PostedFile.ContentLength;
BinaryReader binaryReader = new BinaryReader(BtnUpload.PostedFile.InputStream);
byte[] binData = binaryReader.ReadBytes(BtnUpload.PostedFile.ContentLength);
Stream requestStream = requestToSender.GetRequestStream();
requestStream.Write(binData, 0, binData.Length);
HttpWebResponse responseFromSender = (HttpWebResponse)requestToSender.GetResponse();
string fromSender = string.Empty;
using (StreamReader responseReader = new StreamReader(responseFromSender.GetResponseStream()))
fromSender = responseReader.ReadToEnd();
XMLString.Text = fromSender;

In the page load of CrossPage.aspx i have the following code

NameValueCollection postPageCollection = Request.Form;
foreach (string name in postPageCollection.AllKeys)
Response.Write(name + " " + postPageCollection[name]);
HttpFileCollection postCollection = Request.Files;
foreach (string name in postCollection.AllKeys)
HttpPostedFile aFile = postCollection[name];
aFile.SaveAs(Server.MapPath(".") + "/" + Path.GetFileName(aFile.FileName));
string strxml = "sample";

I don't get the file in Request.Files. The byte array is created. What was wrong with my HttpWebRequest?

C# - Can Reuse HttpWebRequest Without Disconnecting From The Server

Feb 8, 2011

I'm trying to debug a specific issue with my ASP.NET application. The client runs the following code:

void uploadFile( string serverUrl, string filePath )
HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)HttpWebRequest.
Create( serverUrl );
CredentialCache cache = new CredentialCache();
cache.Add( new Uri( serverUrl ), "Basic", new NetworkCredential( "User", "pass" ) );
request.Credentials = cache;
request.Method = "POST";
request.ContentType = "application/octet-stream";
request.Timeout = 60000;
request.KeepAlive = true;
using( BinaryReader reader = new BinaryReader(
File.OpenRead( filePath ) ) ) {
request.ContentLength = reader.BaseStream.Length;
using( Stream stream = request.GetRequestStream() ) {
byte[] buffer = new byte[1024];
while( true ) {
int bytesRead = reader.Read( buffer, 0, buffer.Length );
if( bytesRead == 0 ) {
stream.Write( buffer, 0, bytesRead );
HttpWebResponse result = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();
//handle result - not relevant

and Write() throws an exception with "Unable to write data to the transport connection: An established connection was aborted by the software in your host machine." text. I used System.Net tracing and found that something goes wrong when I send the request with Content-Length set.

Specifically if I omit everything that is inside using statement in the code above the server promptly replies with WWW-Authenticate and then the client reposts the request with WWW-Authenticate and everything goes fine except the file in not uploaded and the request fails much later.

I'd like to do the following: send an request without data, wait for WWW-Authenticate, then repeat it with WWW-Authenticate and data. So I tried to modify the code above: first set all the parameters, then call GetResponse(), then do sending, but when I try to set ContentLength property an exception is thrown with "This property cannot be set after writing has started" text. So HttpWebRequest seems to be non-reusable.

How do I reuse it for resending the request without closing the connection?

C# - HttpWebRequest Connection Limit And RestFUL Server?

Dec 21, 2010

I have created a server product that is connecting to some social network servers and sending to data which status update etc. The server already authenticated to necessary social networks servers by users who is using this solution.

Actually, I have no problem at this time, but I think I will.

My server will be open a thousands of concurrent request to neccessary servers via Http with C# HttpWebRequest instance. I already know that It's possible to change concurrent request limits with below propery.

ServicePointManager.DefaultConnectionLimit AFAIK, this limit is max 100 evet you set more than 100. So, I will be faced with bottleneck problem with HttpWebRequest even change the DefaultConnectionLimit property of ServicePointManager.

WCF / ASMX :: Accessing Response Of HttpWebRequest, Even When Request Returns 500 Internal Server Error

Oct 22, 2010

Hoping someone can point me to a solution, haven't been able to find one yet.

I'm using the standard way for send HttpWebRequest


As you can see from Fiddler/SOAPUI it does return the SOAP fault, however using HttpWebRequest i can't capture the response.

Returning 500 triggers my exception handling and Capturing the WebException doesn't expose the response.

Does anyone know how to capture this response xml in the case of 500 Internal Server Errors.

Web Forms :: Form Post Encoding?

Dec 27, 2010

Our problem is the following:

We have a website that processing products from various web shops! Users of these web shops can send products for our site what will store these products in our database. Users are sending in products through the post method of the form, and within the form the data is in hidden imput fields! Our site using UTF-8 charset, and this service is working like a charm together with other pages that has utf8 chaset too. The problem comes when someone using our service from a site that has other charset then utf8, for example: iso-8859-2.This case the special hungarian characters, like "íéáűőúöüó" are replaced with a '�' character!We have tried to convert the incoming string on server side but that case the '�' has been replaced by '?'. - still not acceptable :)

$.post Form With Facebox And Redirect

Oct 5, 2010

Using Facebox with .NET (Web Forms) is painful--this primarily HTML site was designed by someone else. I may have IIS (7.5) issues as well. This Facebox pop-up is in a separate file, login.html, that is called from index.html:

loading_image : '/images/loading.gif',
close_image : '/images/closelabel.gif'

and the link to open it

<a href="login.html" title="Log In" rel="example_2" id='login'>Log In </a>

The form to be submitted with username and password (login.html):

<form name="login" method="post" action="#" onsubmit="return false;">

and after it's validated (this is working), it posts to login.aspx (login.html):


The form posts. I can debug it in Visual Studio in the Page_Load method of login.aspx. The last line of the Page_Load method is:


But, the Facebox pop-up remains. Firebug shows the post, It hits the Page_Load method of login.aspx, and the Facebox pop-up doesn't go anywhere. BUT, Firebug shows welcomepage.html rendered twice in the Response tab of the XHR (huh? why XHR?) request. I thought $.post did a regular postback. And why isn't my browser actually redirecting.

Attempted Fix

If I change the form in login.html to action='login.aspx', I get a 405.0 error method not allowed (but, it's trying to post to index.html, HUH?). And I can't figure out how to fix this in IIS 7.5 on Windows 7. I get this error in Visual Studio and when deploying locally to IIS. I had read it may have to do with script mapping, handlers, or the fact that I'm posting from an but I can't find a sufficient fix.
