    Hello

    I've used httpwebrequest/response to login to the site and do many other tasks but there is a part of which uses flash to chat between users. I have no idea how I can make a bot for that. Would httpwebrequest be able to do that? if not what is the best thing to do?


    Best Regards!

    many times flash does not run over http, so no. in many cases you couldn't use httpwebrequest to work with it.

    often flash is running over UDP protocol. now i'm not that familiar with all the client/server capabilities of flash but you will have some serious investigation with your packet loggers to do to determine exactly what that chat app is using.

    it's probable that it could be running over http, and therefore able to be used through httpwebrequest. it also equally probable that they could be using udp protocol, in which you would need a couple different classes/namespaces in the .net framework.

    good luck. :)
