Sorry if this is a repost, I've looked and haven't seen it in the forum.

I have an issue, and I am unsure how to proceed.
I want to connect to a site that is a subdomain of another domain.
for example site1.domain1.com

However everytime I open a socket to that domain alias, or subdomain it brings me back to the main domain site (ie domain1.com)
I assume it's trying to dns the site1.domain1.com and finds it to be the same address as domain1.com, and proceeds from there.
Is there anyway around this, or how do I connect to a subdomain?

Thanks in advanced.

Using HTTP? Send the host header:

Host: sub.domain.com

That should do it.

That is how I am doing it
Code:
sockwrite -n pinghsock GET
sockwrite -n pinghsock Host: sub.domain.com $+ $crlf $+ $crlf 


However this still brings me back to just domain.com

To answer this kind of questions, it would help to know the address of the website in question.

I figured as much, was kinda avoiding it because I was trying to come off as creating a meaningful script, but oh well =>

jotun.ultrazone.org is the subdomain I am trying to connect to
and ultrazone.org is the one that I always end up at.

Again I assume it's because it's trying to look it up via dns, and gets the same ip for both.

One server may host multiple websites, and it's the Host header that makes the distinction between the domains you're trying to access. See this page for a friendly explanation.

It worked for me:
Code:
/sockopen echo2 jotun.ultrazone.org 80
/sockwrite -n echo2 GET / HTTP/1.1
/sockwrite -n echo2 Host: jotun.ultrazone.org
/sockwrite -n echo2


The server then sent me "Jon Honeycutt"'s page.

Thanks for the help.
I'm rather new at this so bare with me a little longer

The code above brought me to his page successfully (I wasn't using the http/1.* headers.

How would I then navigate to a page on his site in a subdirectory.

Normally I would do something like the following
Code:
sockwrite -n echo2 GET /g7/idlerpg/players.php


How would you do this with the HTTP headers?

I've read the article and was under the impression it was as follows:
Code:
GET /path/to/file/index.html HTTP/1.0


Which in my case would be
Code:
sockwrite -n echo2 GET /g7/idlerpg/players.php HTTP/1.0


which brings up a 404.
http://jotun.ultrazone.org/g7/players.php

Thanks for your continued assistance.

It looks like the page you're looking for is /g7/players.php (and not /g7/[color:red]idlerpg/players.php[/color])
