I try to make a sort of web browser, but I have the following problem: The token

HEAD /index.html

is not accepted by all servers. I'm sure the file is on the
server, but the program tells me "Bad request". Why ?
What is my mistake ?

Also, can somebody show me a little example for
WSAAsyncgethostbyname ?
I'm interested in using this command to prepare the
parameters for the connect() instruction.

Thanks in advance.

First, the HTTP command you should use is:

  HEAD / HTTP/1.1
  (add more headers here such as Accept)

If you get a response starting with "5", the sever does not suppourt HTTP/1.1 use HTTP/1.0 or HTTP/0.9 instead.

  GET / HTTP/1.0
  (add more headers here such as Accept)

  or

  GET /

In regard to using WinSock, why not use one of the freeware components from the DSP (I suggest socks and/or wsock100):
