SOAP request with ASP

I have the following ASP that:

<%@ Language=VBScript %>
<%Response.Buffer=true%>
<%
const SoapServer = "http://notlocalhost/Services/Test.asmx"

set xmldom = server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
set xmlhttp = server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")

xmlhttp.open "POST", SoapServer, false
xmlhttp.setRequestHeader "Man", POST & " " & SoapServer & " HTTP/1.1"
xmlhttp.setRequestHeader "MessageType", "CALL"
xmlhttp.setRequestHeader "ContentType", "text/xml"
xmlhttp.send(SoapStr)

Set xmldom = xmlhttp.responseXML
Response.write(xmldom.xml)

set xmlhttp = nothing
set xmldom = nothing

function SoapStr()
      SoapStr = SoapStr & "<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi=""http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"" xmlns:xsd=""http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"" xmlns:soap=""http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"">"
      SoapStr = SoapStr & "<soap:Body>"
      SoapStr = SoapStr & "<VerifyUser xmlns=""http://tempuri.org/"">"
      SoapStr = SoapStr & "<pstrUserName>someone@notlocalhost</pstrUserName>"
      SoapStr = SoapStr & "<pstrPassword>pass</pstrPassword>"
      SoapStr = SoapStr & "<pstrChannel>DIRECT</pstrChannel>"      
      SoapStr = SoapStr & "</VerifyUser>"
      SoapStr = SoapStr & "</soap:Body>"
      SoapStr = SoapStr & "</soap:Envelope>"      
end function      
%>

But I can not get it to work... I keep getting:

  <?xml version="1.0" ?>
- <soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
- <soap:Body>
- <soap:Fault>
  <faultcode>soap:Client</faultcode>
  <faultstring>Unable to handle request without a valid action parameter. Please supply a valid soap action.</faultstring>
  <detail />
  </soap:Fault>
  </soap:Body>
  </soap:Envelope>

Any insight is most appriciated as I am fairly new at using ASP w/ SOAP

My guess is that in the soap-XML you need to insert some more information (which the SOAP server is expecting).
Didn't you get an example of how the SOAP message you send should look like?

Yes, I did. And I wrote it into this function:

function SoapStr()
     SoapStr = SoapStr & "<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi=""http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"" xmlns:xsd=""http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"" xmlns:soap=""http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"">"
     SoapStr = SoapStr & "<soap:Body>"
     SoapStr = SoapStr & "<VerifyUser xmlns=""http://tempuri.org/"">"
     SoapStr = SoapStr & "<pstrUserName>someone@notlocalhost</pstrUserName>"
     SoapStr = SoapStr & "<pstrPassword>pass</pstrPassword>"
     SoapStr = SoapStr & "<pstrChannel>DIRECT</pstrChannel>"    
     SoapStr = SoapStr & "</VerifyUser>"
     SoapStr = SoapStr & "</soap:Body>"
     SoapStr = SoapStr & "</soap:Envelope>"    
end function

A Soap request requires the SoapAction header with a value for the method.

After adding:
xmlhttp.setRequestHeader "SOAPAction", "http://tempuri.org/VerifyUser"

I get a new error...
Server found request content type to be '', but expected 'text/xml'.
