The difference between VB.NET and PHP is that PHP is executed on a server. Thus, you don't need to write a server in order to send data via a network, you just need to write your basic PHP code. However, in the majority of programming languages you would need to write a server, then write a client, then connect the client to the server, then send data through the server to the client (or visa versa). This sounds much more complicated than it generally is, and can be accomplished with probably around 100-200 lines of Python (Once again, can't speak for VB.NET).
Sorry, cent, but you're wrong. To just send and receive HTTP requests you only have to open a socket and send the data appropriately. No server needed on your end.
I have no idea how to go about this in VB.net. With that said, if you can figure out how to do ANY HTTP requests, you should be able to do a post or get by just constructing your header and request properly.
Here's the RFC
but it's kinda bulky.This
might be easier to understand.
Otherwise Google HTTP Requests (optionally add in VB.net to your search).
