We are in a need of a function written in C++ that performs a username and password "log-in" to a website and keeps the Internet session with that website open so other actions can be taken.
An example for such web pages is " [[url removed, login to view]]" or [[url removed, login to view]]. We need a function which would log into websites like the above with a username and password and keep the internet session with the website open so other actions can be done without authentication in other parts of the website. An example of such "other actions" would be sending HTML POST/Get request to the "compose mail" form section of the above websites.
The function will take the following arguments: URL, Username and Password.
We also need a way to "close" the Internet session once we are done. We do not want to keep it open for ever.
You can assume that our project can send HTML Post and Get request, however right now it cannot keep the session alive, so it cannot go beyond the log-in stage.
You can also assume that POST method is used for login. This project might have a follow-up project that will add GET method login capabilities.
Please indicate how you'll handle the next phase.
Please contact us for any additional information.
