    Windows | Application proxy

    Hello everyone.

    I am trying to learn myself how to program in C++. Now (I think) I have reached the chapter of making an application proxy.

    I've been searching google for some days now but yet I haven't found anything.

    With an application proxy I mean a program that can, for example, imitate an MSN conversation by sending the data of "Blah says: hiho" to the other computer.

    I know this explanation isn't too clear, but I guess most people will understand what I mean anyway.

    So my question is: How do I do this, can anyone link me to some good tutorials about it, or tell me where to look?

    Thanks in advance,

    You are probably looking for the MSN protocol. You'll also need a knowledge of socket programming a good place to start would be the stickied post in the networking forum.

    I guess you misunderstood my question.

    The MSN-thingy was just an example to show what I meant. I want to make a programm that can modify the data that get's sent to the the server from some program. This could be MSN, because I guess it sends something like "Blah says: Blahblah" to some port on the server (and probably lots more arguments, but it was just an example)

    So, well, my question is mostly self-explaining. How can I send data to a server acting like I'm the client program.

    O my god... I really don't know how to explain this... The way I always call it is "application proxy" but I don't know if that's the right word for it...

    I hope someone can help me

    Yours sincerely
