More info would be needed and it would probably be best if you not post it here.

What is the format of the XML you are SENDING?
I got a timeout when trying that URL, BTW.

URL is not correct. I didn't put the correct one because of security reasons ;)

"What is the format of the XML you are SENDING?" what did you mean with that?

The first line is "<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>"

Well, you say you are SENDING XML to the server and getting XML back.
We now know what the XML RESPONSE from the server looks like.
Arer you sending xml to the server?

You see, in dealing with XMLHTTP and Hotmail, I would some times have
to send a kind of "template" XML in my oXMLHTTP.Send call.

If your server is expecting to get XML from you, then I need to know that.
I don't think there would ba any problem with this being using https
protocol because Hotmail does the same thing, although the initial URL is
redirected to a secure URL.

I only send XML String to server and I only received XML from server as a response. So, you say as long as I send and receive data from httpS, the data transfer is secure. Even I send the XML in the way you described.. is it correct?

Should work, if  you'd like, I could test this with your real url if you'd send via email to
