iPhone XML interface application - Part 1

I'm building an iPhone application that will interface with some networking equipment to pull status data and display it on the screen. The basic components (I think) of this are using http POST, managing a cookie, and reading the xml output from the POST command. I also need to enter a small amount of data in on the phone (server, username, password) so I need to learn how to do some of those things as well.

Some of the things I'm working on so far are:

1. Taking the text input (server url address) on the iPhone and forming that into something to make the actual http query/POST.

2. A framework for working with HTTP that includes POST.
