you gots the IIS resource kit?

there's a proggie called httpcmd; from the readme:

Httpcmd version 1.1 - Command line HTTP client

Usage: httpcmd server input.file [options]

Where input.file contains a full HTTP request. Some typical input files are
provided in the \Utility\Httpcmd\Requests subdirectory of the IIS Resource
Kit CD. Note these request files might need to be modified.

The server's reply is sent to stdoutOptions. The following are options:

    -k  Send Pragma: Keep-connection, input.file contains multiple requests
          seperated by $END on a blank line

    -u:username:password  Use the specified user name and password for
                           authentication purposes

    -a:<authentication scheme>   Can be "Basic", "NTLM" or "MS-KERBEROS"
          Only one NT authentication scheme is currently supported

    -e  Echo send requests to stdout.  Shows what's being requested

    -t  Do HEX-HTTP for filter testing

    -h  Don't echo HTTP headers
