    C++ Networking Help

    I'm making a database program, so I thought it would be fun to store proxies in it. But I want to be able to test the status of the proxies, i.e. see if they are in working order. However, my Comp Sci teacher doesn't work with networking via C++, so he can't answer my questions.

    I thought that pinging would have to be a step in determining if the proxy works, but I'm not really sure. I did some research on the "system" function to run dos commands but I couldn't get it to print anything viable.

    Is there anyway to test if a proxy is working?

    I use the crappy Turbo C++ compiler if that is any help. (I use it for it's sweet graphics library)

    Get a compiler which can use the native API of the OS you're using then!

    LMAO - yeah, low resolution, low numbers of colours
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
