I have CClientSocket class and inside I have two constructors: default one and following

CClientSocket::CClientSocket(const char *pszHost, int nPort, bool bEncrypted /*= false*/)
{
 //how to call default constructor here?
}

How can I call default constructor from within second constructor ?

You can't - that's why one usually creates common 'init()' methods to carry out tasks that are needed in every ctor, e.g.

CClientSocket::init()
{
// common initialization stuff
}
CClientSocket::CClientSocket()
{
    init ();
}
CClientSocket::CClientSocket(const char *pszHost, int nPort, bool bEncrypted /*= false*/)
{
    init ();

    // more stuff
}
