I am working on a VB 6 app that will communicate with a third party server control. The server control wants inforamtion posted to it in the following format.
sql2000 = local server's name
"ya_da_ya_da_ya" = information to be posted.
I have used the VB winsock control in my app to connect to the server and send the information.
Winsock1.Protocol = sckTCPProtocol
Winsock1.Connect "10.0.0.113", "1000"
I have confirmed these three lines of code successfully connect to the server app and send the information. However, since I did not incluce the location of "cgi-bin/auth.cgi", the server does not reply.
How do I connect to the location "cgi-bin/auth.cgi"?
I have tried numerous combinations but they are all just guesses. I do not know how or where to put the "cgi-bin/auth.cgi" in the connect statement.
When I open a browser on the sql2000 machine and type in:
, the server responds with the correct information.
Overall, I am trying to create a winsock control that that sends this data and listens for the response.
I am stuck and the project cannot continue until this is resolved.
