I have capture a emission packet, and this is a HTTP/XML protocol using POST request. I saw the source code, but normaly, when we send a post request, we have to send a variable with its value to an url/server right ? So, how can I know the variable name or the multiple variable name use for contact the serveur with a POST request ?

POST /newsoap/soap/mim.php HTTP/1.1

Section 9.5 "POST" of RFC 2616 says

The actual function performed by the POST method is determined by the server and is usually dependent on the Request-URI. The posted entity is subordinate to that URI in the same way that a file is subordinate to a directory containing it, a news article is subordinate to a newsgroup to which it is posted, or a record is subordinate to a database.

It says nothing about variables; the way the server responds to the request is, as indicated, dependent on the Request-URI (/newsoap/soap/mim.php) - perhaps that's a PHP script that reads an XML blob of SOAP (as opposed to a bar of soap :-)) and performs the request indicated by the blob with the parameters indicated by the blob.
