    Try to use a "HTTP Post" step.
    Enter your action value in the URL field.
    Your form fields will come from a suitable input step, use DataGrid for testing.
    Add your form fields on the Fields page of the step under Body Parameters and select "Put in Header?" = N.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    Hi marabu,

    thank you for reply. I hadn't mentioned, that I need solution for various number of inputs. One POST can have only two inputs but others 3, 4 or more (IE. below).
    I have decided to use bash(4ever ) curl, because Kettle HTTP Post Step makes me crazy and I didn't find better way.

    <form action="" method="post">
    <input type=text name="firstname" value="Stephen">
    <input type=text name="lastname" value="Crop">
    <input type=submit name=press value=" OK ">
