    Resume a broken download

    How do you communicate to a remote server, using SOCKETS or WININET, that you wish to resume a download which was broken midway through the download, for example?

    Could someone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks

    What kind of remote server? If it's HTTP, you need to read up about header fields in the RFC. Try this one
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
