Hello i would like to use mirc to login and send posts to my forum.Is there such mirc login script so that i can login to my pbpBB forum and send posts to it?
IF not what will the code be like.Been searching the web for over 2 hrs. now but all i got was some socket tutorials which isnt that useful for a newbie.
Any help would highly be appreciated.Thanx in advance...

I dont know that forum, but there is a script called VINCULA that allows u to log in to MSN from mIRC maybe u could use some lines from that script and use it to create a new one that logs in to ur Forum

I know this isnt very helpfull but Its the best I can offer u.

you can download Vincula from here

It is possible but requires alot of knowledge of HTTP/1.0 and HTTP/1.1 protocol as well as indepth knowledge of mIRC sockets.

Very simply, the process is as follows:

1. Socket connects to your forum host (www.whatever.com)
2. Socket requests your login page
3. Socket sends data to the login processing page via POST
4. Socket *usually* (not always) recieves data as a COOKIE
5. mIRC needs to store the COOKIE
6. Socket requests your forum page(s) and at each time posting back the COOKIE.
7. To post, mIRC repeats step 3. but only to the 'post processing page'

If you have sound knowledge of mIRC sockets, the rest (protocols) can be obtained via a nifty program called 'Ethereal' which basically monitors/records all data sent between you and the server, so you can get the protocol from there.
