Re: Internet connectivity
Well the disadvantage of using winsock is that you will have to do
everything that the HTTP protocol does, yourself.
WinINet on the other hand does alot of the work for you, specially the SSL
If you simply want to post commands to a webserver and receive HTML back,
then use WinINet.

I'm adding online functionality (just POST and GET for HTTP at the moment)
to my MFC VS2k5 app and looked for some article on this on
I've found basically two flavours:
a) Using wininet
b) Using just winsock
Considering the code are ready and working, my questions are:
a) What is advantage of each approach?
b) What is de disadvantage of each approach?
c) What about authentication? Basic, Digest, MD5, HMAC, "ISA PROXY SERVER"
kerberos among others. Is there any class MFC provides that does or
facilitate the authentication?
