    what is the best way to implement simple checking mechanism

    Hello all im wandering what will be the best way to implement
    http checking mechanism , what i mean is that i need to query every N seconds if i have
    connection to my server .
    my idea was to start seperet thread from my main application ,this thread will start endless loop
    that will send http post massage to the server every N seconds . and the server will return response
    what do you think do you know better way to do this ?

    Seems like one way that would work.

    What is your ACTUAL goal? If you describe further what you want to achieve, we may be able to come up with a better solution.

    Depends on how you intend to implement it. If your using winsockets you could just wait till your send or recv loop didn't return SOCKET_ERROR.

    thanks for the fast reply my ACTUAL goal is simple i like to check if i have
    Internet connection all the time.
    i do use winsock and recv.
    they are in some class that handle the http port action .
    i dont see any way but adding another loop that will execute the http handler method
    every N seconds
