            request.ContentLength = byteArray.Length;

            Stream dataStream1 = request.GetRequestStream();

            dataStream1.Write(byteArray, 0, byteArray.Length);

            dataStream1.Close();

            #endregion

            #region Response
            HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();

            Console.WriteLine(((HttpWebResponse)response).StatusDescription);

            Stream dataStream = response.GetResponseStream();

            StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(dataStream);

            string responseFromServer = reader.ReadToEnd();

            #endregion

            #region Print Resonse
            Console.WriteLine(responseFromServer);
            Console.Read();
            reader.Close();
