I would like to write a program that can query another program on a server for some information, sending a username and password.
The program on the server would then get the information and send out a reply
The local program would acknowledge the reply
The connection would close.
Is Winsock the best way to do this?
Or is there a different object that I should be looking for?
Any code tips or pointers to webpages that will help gratefully received.
