Hello all and Merry Christmas

I saw Winsock component but I'm not sure can it be used as HTTP server? I mean, I need to load HTTP server and receive some events when user connects to server etc. Thank you.

Merry Christmas!

I'm sorry to say that it cannot be used as an HTTP server. Of course, if you wish to implement the HTTP protocol, and specifically everything having to do with the server-side of the protocol, then it's possible, but it is a very large undertaking ( to be measured in man years of work). I would recommend the book "HTTP: A Definitive Guide" by O'Reilly to get a reasonable overview of all that is involved with the HTTP protocol.
