So this is because server won't understand SOAPAction header, the value given there ("Policy") looks strange for the server.

Try to sniff the conversation (say take Wireshark, easy tool and nice GUI), and see what's going on between hosts. Then you'll need to have some tune up the server software to have it send right headers.

Too generic but that's the direction to see for you!

>> soapclient: faultcode = soap:Client

The Problem is occurring on the Client side.

Are you setting a SOAPAction property correctly, generally that will be a URL which can see in your WSDL file. search for SOAPAction and make sure you are setting it right. because based on your SOAPAction appropriate operation will be invoked on the server side, if it can't understand your SOAPAction then you will get the above error.

Server could understand your SOAPAction but now while parsing your SOAP message its not getting values or its getting null values for few things check the way you are setting the parameters.

In short words i0 you're deal with it as with 'out-of-box' solutions it won't work. If you interested in running it up you'll need to do some debug, on whenever side you like. Simple find which code sends out that error headers and/or request lines and trace why it is so. But frankly if you need to make it run maybe it will be better to ask or hire someone to fix that, and give him access to the servers.

Its not a outbox problem, I know debugging web services related problems are hard but not impossible :) , if it was Java, I might have asked him to show the way he was making the request and setting the parameters for the request. (As I am a Java Guy)

In fact people who have good working experience with Web Services using PHP can help him much easily.

Errors like "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" used to be referenced in cases when one of the points (one of servers in the case) is ill-tuned. The debug can be made, but of course not so 'remotely' via posts.

Hope syedefu will provide more info on servers setup, who and how tune it up. There may be a lot of easy to miss points, such as even misconfiguration in web servers itself not in the web apps layer.
