I am posting an xml document to an third-party server, and it is failing with the error 0x800c0008.  I am able to use the same code to post to a different third-party server successfully.  How can I trouble shoot the issue prior to contacting the third party?

Here is my vbscript code:

' Create XMLHTTP Object
Set oXMLhttpObject = WScript.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")            
' Open connection
oXMLhttpObject.Open "POST",cnXMLHTTP_TRANSACTION_URL,false            
' Set Header for content type
oXMLhttpObject.setRequestHeader "Content-type", "text/xml"            
' Send XML string
oXMLhttpObject.send strXMLString
' Read Response
strResponseStatus       = oXMLhttpObject.status
strResponseText       = oXMLhttpObject.responseText

Also, I already said that this is working for another third party server, just not this one.

Is the URL you are posting to SSL secured? If so, when you call it in your browser is there a certificate error? If so, there is an option parameter for XMLHTTP to ignore those!

It would have helped if Darthsonic had provided the code to ignore the cert error, instead of just saying that there was one.
