    requesting html source from a server

    hi.

    i have a problem with some code i am working on.
    i connect to a webserver on port 80.

    when connected i send a message like that to the server:
    "GET /\n".

    then i receive the response back into a buffer.
    with the GET request i want to receive the html source of the page.
    but i only get the server running and the remaining meta informations.

    how can i obtain the html source via a GET request?

    thanks
