Please stop starting new topics for the same thing and also top posting
[1] in replies, both make the conversation harder to follow.

When you send data in a header field it should be in the 'name: value'
format. Based on your screenshot of the manual they want the value for
feed to be base64 encoded. One interesting thing here is whether the
header can be continued over multiple lines (I'm not sure about that
myself) but I would not do that and check to make sure your base64
encoder is not doing that.

header_list = curl_slist_append(header_list, "feed: <base64data>");
