Hi,

Is there a way of creating a one to one client server app that communicates using specifically the http protocol? What control is best to use, although I'd prefer not to use a control at all and use a winsock class implementation, does such a thing exist?

I need to send information back and forth across the interent, but it needs to go via http to avoid firewalls etc...

Thanks for any help,

Mike

all you need to do is use the Winsock control, and communicate on Port 80. don't worry about actually using HTTP Protocol - in fact, if you do, you'll limit yourself severely.

simply use TCP/IP Port 80 (which is standard HTTP port) and then create your own data protocol for whatever communications you need to do.

it's simple - there are many tutorials on internet how to create this.
