'Name' does not appear to be a standard parameter of the HTML FROM tag.
What browser do you use to render that page? IE?

sent by the browser using a traffic analyzer or an HTTP proxy. Knowing
exactly what kind of request the server expects it should be possible to
mimic the same behaviour using HttpClient
