New to soap, installing question

Hi all,

I want to start using soap and I have certain problems with the installation.
My PHP version is 5.2.5 and I'm working on Windows. I've read that with this version number I don't need to install anything but the script below shows nothing, a blank page.

What do I have to do to get soap running?

Thanks a ton in advance!  
<?php 
 
   $client = new SoapClient
      ("http://www.xmethods.net/sd/2001/DemoTemperatureService.wsdl");
   echo("\nReturning value of getTemp() call: ".
      $client->getTemp("12345"));
?>

Are you sure that wsdl exists? I get this when I request it in the browser:

The requested URL /sd/2001/DemoTemperatureService.wsdl was not found on this server.

When doing the call, fetch the result and use var_dump() to see the properties:

$res = $client->getTemp("12345");
var_dump($res);

Here is one:
$wsdl = 'http://www.ecubicle.net/iptocountry.asmx?wsdl';
$client = new soapclient($wsdl);
$param = array('V4IPAddress'=>'64.156.132.140');
$res = $client->FindCountryAsString($param);
var_dump($res);
echo "<br />Country:".$res->FindCountryAsStringResult;
