InternetConnect http question
Posted on 2001-06-12
I'm haveing a bit of trouble understanding the WinInet InternetConnect function call as it applies to username & password for a http session.
The documentation says:
; a NULL parameter in HTTP causes the server to return an error
Is that really true!!?? and just what is InternetConnect doing at this point for a http session? Just opening a socket? If so what would it do with any username and password supplied anyway? Maybe save them up and use them in subsequent HttpOpenRequest?
Any insight into what is going on with respect to user details and the InternetConnect function as far as http is concerned would be greatly appreciated.
