MSXML (XMLHTTP) Object - Server Settings

MSXML (XMLHTTP) Object - Server Settings

MSXML (XMLHTTP) Object - Server Settings


I'm using this object to POST information into a results asp page. Everything works perfect on my http://LocalHost site, but not on my production intranet.

You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied because your Web browser is sending a WWW-Authenticate header field that the Web server is not configured to accept.  

I'm not sure what settings on the LIVE server are different from my TEST server. It doesn't seem to be anything that is jumping out at me.

RE: MSXML (XMLHTTP) Object - Server Settings

Hello dustinbrooks,

May I ask what are the lines you set setrequestheader for the xmlhttp (or similarly named) object? ie the lines

     xmlhttp.setrequestheader ???,??? <<---

RE: MSXML (XMLHTTP) Object - Server Settings

Response.Buffer = True
Dim objXMLHTTP, xml, item, strpost

Set xml = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP")
xml.Open "POST", "****://gnet/assetprotection/frm_investigationreport_verify.asp",false

xml.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"

xml.Send strPostInfo
Response.Write xml.responseText
Set xml = Nothing

RE: MSXML (XMLHTTP) Object - Server Settings

Well does anyone at least know of any specific settings that have to be on the web server in order to use XMLHTTP?

RE: MSXML (XMLHTTP) Object - Server Settings


If it happens as the first time your post to the production server, I would look into running proxy configuration proxycfg utility. (But, I think you probably had done something in that direction since day-one?) Otherwise, security-related? I'm still searching for my learning.

regards - tsuji
