Weird problem using Microsoft.XMLHTTP. Works on all but 1 server...????
Posted on 2007-11-14
I've got the following little chunk of code in my application...
URL = "http://www.domain.com/fmApps/ImportWebOrders.asp"
Set objXMLHTTP = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
objXMLHTTP.Open "POST", URL, false
objXMLHTTPResponse = objXMLHTTP.responseText
Set objXMLHTTP = Nothing
This application has been in use for more than a year and has never had an issue...until today. Suddenly I'm getting timeouts when the script hits this portion of code and tries to run the other script in the background.
When I put this code block in a script on my test servers here at home it works just fine...even using the same URL, which is the actual live web server. However, if I run the code block on the actual live server itself I get timeouts.
Again, this suddenly started happening today after about a year's use on this server. There have been no updates or changes to the server since this has stopped working.
Any ideas on this would be greatly appreciated. I"m at a complete loss.
