fsockopen and faking headers

Snow-Storm asked
Last Modified: 2008-02-01
First of all I want to know why I cant get some pages html using xml objects from a server but can call up the page with my browser.  Is there a way to connect through sockets and fake the headers to get the html of a page on another server that may not necessarily allow you to use xml objects or fread(fopen to read html?
