Commands that have been sent to the server are displayed in this list with a C: prefix to indicate that they are from the client. Responses returned from the SMTP server will be displayed with the S: prefix.

As soon as the socket is accepted, input and output objects are created; this same process was used with the SMTP client. getOutputStream()); Now that the program has input and output objects, it can process the HTTP request. It first reads the HTTP request lines.
