Description:

I need to connect to a cgi script in a subdirectory.
http://theSite.com/subdirectory/new_login.cgi
At what point of the socket connection do you pass the directory location ('subdirectory/newlogin.cgi')?

This seems to work for me (though I am having bad luck with a D-Link modem at the moment):

my $sock = IO::Socket::INET->new( PeerAddr => $host, PeerPort => $port, Proto => 'tcp', Timeout => 5 ); unless ($sock) { $errormessage = $tr{'could not connect to http://$host:$port/$filen +ame'}; return '0'; } $sock->print("GET /".$filename." HTTP/1.0\r\n");

At no point, if you can help it. If you want to speak HTTP, use LWP::Simple.
