hi experts

i have the following scripts that works well on my server W2k3

 ' Intruduce the url you want to visit
 GotothisURL = " /end.asp?"& ENCRYPTED_CYPHERTEXT
 ' Create the xml object
 Set GetConnection = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
 ' Conect to specified URL
 GetConnection.Open "get", GotothisURL, False

 ' ResponsePage is the response we will get when visiting GotothisURL
 ResponsePage = GetConnection.responseText

But when i place it on W2K server i get this error

msxml3.dll error '80072efd'
A connection with the server could not be established
/gestionprofil/passerelle.asp, line 67

line 67 is : GetConnection.Send  

i have checked with versions of msxml are installed on this server
i found that all of them are installed
MSXML2 v2.6, v3.0, v4.0

What's the problem, what should i check too
please advise.
