   I am writing a proxy server with C using vc++ 6.0
   I am using WIN32 API and NOT USING MFC. My problem is
   sending the basic HTTP headers just does not work in
   the browser! I have included the code. Pleash HELP!

#include "main.h"    
void main()
     WSAData wData;
     SOCKET serverSocket;    
     SOCKADDR_IN serverAddr;

     WSAStartup(MAKEWORD(2, 0), &wData);

     serverSocket=socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0);

     bind(serverSocket, (struct sockaddr *)&serverAddr, sizeof

     listen(serverSocket, 10);

          SOCKADDR_IN clientAddr;
          int clientAddrLen=sizeof(clientAddr);

          SOCKET client=accept(serverSocket, (struct sockaddr *)      
                                     &clientAddr, &clientAddrLen);          
          char * resp="HTTP/1.0 200 OK\r\n"
                   "Content-type: text/html\r\n\r\n"

you MUST call receive first.
when connecting to a server the browser send a request, then it reads for the answer from the server.
so after accept, do :
char szRecvbuf[2049];
recv(client, szRecvbuf, 2048, 0);
then you can send the buffer
