XML and HTTPS

I currently have an application that has a front end GUI asp page with a backend asp page that does all the processing, using XML to send the data back and forth.  Everything works just fine.  Now I need to move my backend processing pages to another server that is a secured site, so the address will now be https, where it was http before.  Is there anything that will need to change in my code to allow the XML data to be passed back and forth as it currently is?  Upon first try, and without changing any code, I receive this error on this line:

xmlHTTP.send(strSOAP)

gets this error:
Error Type:
(0x800C0008)

thanks in advance.... Geoff

It may not be posbile to go between HTTP and HTTPS if you are using XMLHTTP. Look at this:

I read that earlier, but it looks like it was fixed, since I have downloaded the most recent versions?

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.

This bug was corrected in Microsoft XML 3.0 Service Pack 1.

Well, the error message you got translates into "Cannot download the information you requested." Until MS fixes the problem, I'm not sure what to tell you.

You might try this:

The error is caused by SSL (Secure Socket Layer). The process requires SSL and if the date and time on your computer varies too much from the valid date and time of the SSL certificates on Windows Update, the process will fail. Please verify that your computer's date and time are accurate and that the Internet Explorer language option is not empty.

To check the language setting in Internet Explorer:
1. Click "Tools" and then select "Internet Options".
2. Click "Languages".
3. Make sure at least one language is listed in the
"Language Options" dialog box.

Please delete the Internet cache and cookies.
