Hi dear Friends,

Friends does any one has a source of web based proxy in ASP. Or any guidelines for how to make a web based proxy in ASP. What a web based will do is that it will take information from a dynamic web page and show it to clients from it's own. Like if I want to take the search results from google and show it to clients and there will be no direct connection between the client and the google server, let me elaborate it more : if the client want to search google through my web page which is made in asp then first of the client will sent the request for his search to my web page then my web page will go to google, take the search results from the google, google will return the results in HTML format to my web page then my web page will show each line of the HTML result to client through it's "Response.Write" command, this is what I want to do in ASP. The knowledge which I already have is that I can show the HTML results from google to my clients through "Response.Write" command, but the problem is that I don't know what coding should I write in my ASP web page to collect the google search results.

What you're describing is something many content providers won't like (you're effectively stripping all their branding and advertising income).

Those that do offer such services usually provide a complete API for you to use.
