Using C++ to "Listen"

I am attempting to develop an application for a client that will monitor Web
Traffic on a Users PC (from a tray application that the user downloads) - I
am NOT interested in blocking or limiting internet access, I only want to be
able to monitor (listen) for ANY internet access by the User from their PC
and then once that is done to "sniff" the packet of info to determine
exactly what webpage the user access. My client is wanting to see what
website a customer of theirs visits, then when they visit a "Green" website
(vendor belonging to their program) the tray application will know that and
display relevant information. I am researching sockets, but I just need to
figure out a way to get the browser url of the page that is visited. If I
cant do this with C++, I can do it in Delphi. And no, cookies will not work
in this situation....

Any help here would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jim

Try comp.os.<your_os_here>.programmer Nothing like you describe can be
achieved without using platform- or OS-specific means, and so is OT here.

Probably best if you ask in an operating system-specific newsgroup. Here,
we don't really concentrate on this kind of thing. Try
comp.os.ms-windows.programming or something like that.

Try microsoft.public.vc... or microsoft.public.win32...

on the news.microsoft.com news server.

I read the group comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.win32,
and like most groups, it has a smattering of spam,
but imo the bulk of posts are topical and useful.

Also you can visit www.msdn.microsoft.com and search
for info, as well as visit the MS-specific newsgroups
cited there.

If your news server does not provide some or all of
these groups, connect to Microsoft's public news
server, msnews.microsoft.com

You're probably looking at that newsgroup via your ISP's newsserver. Try
the microsoft one, at news.microsoft.com. It should be much better.

D'oh! You're quite right, of course. There should be a newsgroup there
that applies, of course. But obviously comp.os.ms-windows ain't it! Mea
culpa!
