When dealing with submit modules of nepenthes, you will find several notices about the favourite one of the authors of nepenthes, namely submit-mwserv (with the appropriate submit-mwserv.conf – file).
However, there is no hint on how to write the necessary ‘submit’ application on the receiving server-side..
To see what data is actually sent, I set up a listening socket and wrote the incoming raw – data to a file.
They looked like:

POST /heartbeat HTTP/1.1
User-Agent: nepenthes 0.2.2 (Linux, x86, g++)
Accept: */*
Content-Length: 487
Expect: 100-continue
Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=----------------------------285dc72e

A normal http-post request. Not really normal though, because the Expect: “100-continue” header was new to me. A quick google-check found rfc2616 : 8.2.3 Use of the 100 (Continue) Status So I will answer the request with a “100” response and will see what data will follow..
