      Dim myHttpWebResponse As HttpWebResponse = CType(myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)
      Dim method As String
      method = myHttpWebResponse.Method
      If [String].Compare(method, "GET") = 0 Then
          Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.NewLine + "The GET method was successfully invoked on the following Web Server : {0}", myHttpWebResponse.Server)
      End If
      ' Releases the resources of the response.
      myHttpWebResponse.Close()
  Catch e As WebException
      Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.NewLine + "Exception Raised. The following error occured : {0}", e.Status)
  Catch e As Exception
      Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.NewLine + "The following exception was raised : {0}", e.Message)
  End Try
