Node.js TCP client and server example
/*
In the node.js intro tutorial (http://nodejs.org/), they show a basic tcp
server, but for some reason omit a client connecting to it. I added an
example at the bottom.
Save the following server in example.js:
*/
var net = require('net');
var server = net.createServer(function(socket) {
socket.write('Echo server\r\n');
socket.pipe(socket);
});
server.listen(1337, '127.0.0.1');
/*
And connect with a tcp client from the command line using netcat, the *nix
utility for reading and writing across tcp/udp network connections. I've only
used it for debugging myself.
$ netcat 127.0.0.1 1337
You should see:
> Echo server
*/
/* Or use this example tcp client written in node.js. (Originated with
example code from
http://www.hacksparrow.com/tcp-socket-programming-in-node-js.html.) */
var net = require('net');
var client = new net.Socket();
client.connect(1337, '127.0.0.1', function() {
console.log('Connected');
client.write('Hello, server! Love, Client.');
});
client.on('data', function(data) {
console.log('Received: ' + data);
client.destroy(); // kill client after server's response
});
client.on('close', function() {
console.log('Connection closed');
});

I don't think you can set headers with TCP. HTTP maybe what you are looking for
