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).
