If your router supports SSH or Telnet, I would use a proper library for that. You can find some on Google. If not, and HTTP is the only options, then you simply won't be able to send it commands other than those already available on its web management console. You can use something like Apache's HttpClient to execute GET and POST request.
Are you certain that the way to get the router to do something is to POST "sh runn" to it? Is that what its documentation says to do? What is the response of the router?

Cisco hardware is rather expensive - I'd expect there to be extensive documentation available on Cisco's web site.
