msxml hangs when I contact credit card processor from hosting service
Posted on 2002-06-20
I have a problem with posting data to my credit card processor from my hosting service; the script hangs indefinitely when I send data.
This is a script that demonstrates the problem without including my account number:
<%@ Language=VBScript %>
str = "GEN_ACCOUNT=" & "121212121212"
set xobj = server.Createobject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP")
This script will return a response of Invalid Account Number. It works fine from my development machine, but it hangs on my hosting service. I've also had the same problem with other components posting to the service from the hosting service. I've used a component called ASPTear, and the Microsoft.xmlhttp component.
The odd thing is that all of these components have worked for a few days, and then developed this same hanging problem.
Another odd thing is that the msxml.xmlhttp component will post successfully to some simple active server pages that I create as tests.
Does anyone have any idea what is going on here?
