On Windows I want to make simple HTTP requests to find bugs in my scripts. Of course I usually use more convenient tools (like the "REST client"-plugin in Firefox) but now I want to go one level deeper.
How can I make HTTP requests in Windows from command line?
I tried to use Plink (from PuTTY):
plink -telnet -P 80 servername GET /index.php
But the server keeps telling me, that
The request verb is invalid.
Probably it ignores the
GET /index.php part.
- I don't have
telnet(I'm using my company's PC and I can't install that Windows feature here)
- I want to keep it low-level (not following any redirects, etc.)
