Hi EE,
   I can connect using Windows based programming languages nowadays via socket connection but is there any program that is DOS 6.x based that also can to the same? I don't know if possible via Winsock or Packet driver. All I want is a DOS nased program that interface via HTTP and return the html value in DOS.

thanks.

Hi,

If you only need http, the simpler way is to go libcurl, there is a DOS port for libcurl and you can get it here: http://curl.haxx.se/download.html.
