    Questions that come to mind:
    • What does the server do with the command?
    • Is the client and server on the same machine?
    • Why is used and then you mention in another example ?

    Dude, you have already received eleven replies to this question on another post. Why are you starting a new thread? This just wastes everyones time, as they repeat the answers already given to you.

    Go back to the previous thread and look at the answers. You should have enough information to find out how to construct a post request.

    In addition, posting a little code that has no bearing on the actual problem simply misleads people into thinking you are putting real effort into this. Use Google, do some research, post some real code that actually does something. As it is, you are taking unfair advantage of the people that are trying to help you.

    @Steve11235: Your obviously missing the difference between this post and his last post. This post is asking about how to post a CGI request, where his last post was about grabbing an image. Completely different.
