Thanks for the information. I think I should give you 100 points for this. Becuase I already did this excercise, except in suggested url give some focus me for how to read XML file or you can say xml response. But After I faced one more problem, that whenever I run my application in under Local Network it wont run, probably we are using Proxy services using 8080 port, but if I runt same application out of the of network machine, it works perfectly. Is there any way to handle this situtation?

Again Thanks for the help.

Hi Ashish,

Please forgive me as I have some difficulty in understanding your comment. I assume (believe) it's because Microsoft.XMLHTTP needs to be run from a server, and so won't function locally - but that is not my area of expertise, so I may be mistaken. You may also want to post a question in one of the Network or Web Server TA's for help with this ...

Thanks,
Sean
