Hey,

How can I navigate to a page using Indy and get the headers from that page,
The headers should look somethink like:-

HTTP/1.1 302 Found
Server: Microsoft-IIS/5.0
Date: Mon, 01 Jan 2000 12:00:00 GMT

Also I need how to send custom headers to the page like, Authorization.

GET /login.asp HTTP/1.1
Authorization: Blah Data

For the first one, using TidHTTP, you can do this:

idHTTP1.Head('http://www.austinmetrobaseball.com');
Memo1.Lines.Text := idHTTP1.ResponseText + #13 +
idHTTP1.Response.RawHeaders.Text;

Add a IdSSLIOHandlerSocket and assign it to the idHTTP's IOHandler property.
Set the SSL parameters and away you go. Make sure you have AN SSL library installed.
