CFHTTP Connection Failure on Production Servers

I have a production and development ColdFusion environment.  Both are ColdFusion 7 and we have the same patches and JRE on both environments.

We are working on a new integration with a client and we are posting an XML data stream to the client using CFHTTP.  When we post the data on the development environment, the post works without a problem.  When we post on the production environment, we are getting a CONNECTION FAILURE message.  We have tried this post on both environments with a regular html form post and it works on both environments.

Both environments are behind the same firewall, so we have confirmed that the problem is not a connectivity issue with either firewall.  Since the ColdFUsion servers are setup exactly the same, we are confused as to why this issue is occurring.  Any help is appreciated.

Two questions.

Is there an SSL on the production box?

What Web Server SW is running?  IIS ?

We are running IIS on Windows Server 2003 on development and production.  There is an SSL on the production box, but we are not using SSL for this project.  I can post using CFHTTP to local resources and I tried to do a get to cnn yesterday with no problems as well.

By any chance, is the production server GoDaddy? I am having a problem with one of their servers. The cfhttp tag just isn't working.

Unfortunately, no.  We are on our own production servers hosted within a co-location facility.

I've done a bunch of testing and it looks like its a server configuration. I don't know enough about hosting to know where to start, but I'm pretty sure that the cfhttp I'm using is working properly, its just not getting past IIS I think. If you come up with a solution, please let me know. Thanks.

I will definitely post if I find anything.  If you can do the same, it would be greatly appreciated.

We solved it ourselves.  We just used regular http posting instead of trying to get the ColdFusion cfhttp post to work
