    For advanced work on shell, you can use browser client like lynx or links2 (great )

    To test HTTP with telnet you can insert this lines.

    telnet ip 3328(or 80, 443)
    Trying ip...
    Connected to ip.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    GET / HTTP/1.1

    And 2 presses on Enter key

    GET (or HEAD,POST,FILE ...) is action.
    / is path (like http://youip/ => / )
    HTTP/1.1 is protocol version

    Next you can if the is Vhost put Host: directive.


    There are a lot of directives HTTP like useragent, charset ...
