HTTP is a network protocol for serving web pages.

Testing Edit

You can use the following bash script to test HTTP easily:

echo open $1 80
sleep 2
echo "GET $2 HTTP/1.0"
echo "User-Agent: Sysadmin Wiki 1.0 ("
echo "Host: $1"
sleep 2

You need to give it arguments for the server to connect to and the URL to retrieve and then you need to pipe the output to telnet, like this:

./httptest / | telnet
