I'm trying to get response from a server. At the moment, it returns this:

However, I don't want the full response with server header.
I only wan't the "Hello world!" part to be returned.
How do I approach this ? Any ideas ?

My Code so far:

Thank you!

What I have tried:

Tried changing the request.
I really don't have much idea how to approach this the correct way :(

The response headers are part of the HTTP specification. You don't modify the response; instead, you parse it according to the specification.

Google has plenty of hits for "C++ parse http response" - for example: tinyhttp - A minimal HTTP response parser[^]
Maybe this will clarify the working of HTTP GET: HTTP Made Really Easy[^]
You can use this for testing: - Make HTTP requests[^]
I just need to get simple response without the server header. That's all Im trying to achieve with winsock.

It's not about the request. It's about parsing the response correctly (leaving out the server header in my case).

1) This is not an answer to your question. Do not post comments as "solutions".

2) I already gave you a link to a library which will let you parse the response correctly.
