Hmmm, this is not really HTTP/1.1 compliant! At least the Host
header is missing! According to RFC 2616 (HTTP/1.1):

  9. The Host request header field (section 14.23) MUST
  accompany all HTTP/1.1 requests.

This is because most web servers do virtual domain hosting
on a single IP and use the Host header to disambiguate between

Try adding Host, and if that's not enough, you may need to add
more headers, like, say:
  Connection: close
  Content-length: <length of message in bytes>
  Content-type: <some mime type>

Good luck!
