Hi

I am having trouble sending xml requests using winsock to an application server running on my pc.
I am able to connect, but when i try to send a xml request the server hasn't received the message.

If anyone can see why the following code wouldn't work or any other suggestions, it would be appreciated.

    With Winsock1
        .Close
        .LocalPort = 0
        .RemoteHost = "localhost"
        .RemotePort = 7001
        .Connect
    End With

    Dim objXMLDoc As New DOMDocument40  
    objXMLDoc.async = False
    objXMLDoc.validateOnParse = False
    objXMLDoc.resolveExternals = False

    Dim root As IXMLDOMNode
    Set root = objXMLDoc.appendChild(objXMLDoc.createElement("Request_Logon"))
    Dim data As IXMLDOMNode
    Set data = root.appendChild(objXMLDoc.createElement("Data"))
    data.appendChild(objXMLDoc.createElement("UserName")).Text = "user_1"

    ' send xml request
    Winsock1.SendData objXMLDoc.xml

Thanks.

Try writing a simple winsock based server which does a

winsock1.listen at port 7001
in the winsock1_data arrival event, do a getData and see what sutff is coming in.

hey...i tried writing a lil server that opens this port and gets this data...

me did this in debug mode, and it got the data full n clean.

Me can only think of 1 option....as in, possilby the server takes some lil time to connect or mebbe it doesnt
directly take in the xml first hand.

for the first think, i suggest u wait a lil using the Sleep api or so.
BEtter option is to loop (and DoEvents) while winsock.state is not sckConected, and then do the sending the xml.

As to the other thing, i dunno how ur server starts teh communic.
