I'm trying to use web servivces to connect to a company's server and download load some docs...I've got all the connection details required etc...it's just a matter of setting the web services up.

I've been using it using PHP on this site "http://www.ferdychristant.com/blog/articles/DOMM-6J2QFF" and everything has worked ok when doing it locally.

Is there any external Internet "test site" where I can try connecting to a server and try connecting there to see if it's works ok....as when trying to connect to the server I need to it doesn't appear to be working....just wondering if there's anything out there to test on?

Thanks,

Hello,

For testing purposes, you can use the VPS (Virtual Private Server).

Hello,

VPS is free for limited period.

So you can test with it what you want.
