I have a cart that shakes hands with authorize.net but my transactions are not posting...I am not sure what else to do at this point I have attached code with dummy data...

On IIS the SSL is configured to 443 and tcp is configured to 80...it worked in test..but now is not working live...

here is the code where hands off...
Session("card_number") = "136789098765434"
        Session("Combined_Expiration") = "0513"
        Session("Purchase_Total") = "1.10"
        Session("First_Name") = "jOHN"
        Session("Last_name") = "sMITH"
        Session("Address_1") = "22368 Riverwoods Rd Smallville"
        Session("dropdpwnlist_State") = "OH"
        Session("Zip_code") = "456213"

        Dim stop_here As String

        stop_here = ""
        ' ---------------------------------------

        Dim post_values As New Dictionary(Of String, String)

        'the API Login ID and Transaction Key must be replaced with valid values
        post_values.Add("x_login", "3ETN68UNJ06HK")
        post_values.Add("x_tran_key", "4RTNM6TDFCBNMLO")

        post_values.Add("x_delim_data", "TRUE")
        post_values.Add("x_delim_char", "|")
        post_values.Add("x_relay_response", "FALSE")

        post_values.Add("x_type", "AUTH_CAPTURE")
        post_values.Add("x_method", "CC")
        post_values.Add("x_card_num", Session("card_number"))
        'post_values.Add("x_exp_date", "0115")
        post_values.Add("x_exp_date", Session("Combined_Expiration"))

        post_values.Add("x_amount", Session("Purchase_Total"))
        post_values.Add("x_description", "abccomp Transaction")

        post_values.Add("x_first_name", Session("First_Name"))
        post_values.Add("x_last_name", Session("Last_name"))
        post_values.Add("x_address", Session("Address_1"))
        post_values.Add("x_state", Session("dropdpwnlist_State"))
        post_values.Add("x_zip", Session("Zip_code"))
        ' Additional fields can be added here as outlined in the AIM integration

        ' This section takes the input fields and converts them to the proper format

        For Each field As KeyValuePair(Of String, String) In post_values
            post_string &= field.Key & "=" & HttpUtility.UrlEncode(field.Value) & "&"
        post_string = Left(post_string, Len(post_string) - 1)

        ' The following section provides an example of how to add line item details to
        ' the post string.  Because line items may consist of multiple values with the
        ' same key/name, they cannot be simply added into the above array.

        Dim objRequest As HttpWebRequest = CType(WebRequest.Create(post_url), HttpWebRequest)
        objRequest.Method = "POST"
        objRequest.ContentLength = post_string.Length
        objRequest.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"

        ' post data is sent as a stream
        Dim myWriter As StreamWriter = Nothing
        myWriter = New StreamWriter(objRequest.GetRequestStream())

        ' returned values are returned as a stream, then read into a string
        Dim objResponse As HttpWebResponse = CType(objRequest.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)
        Dim responseStream As New StreamReader(objResponse.GetResponseStream())
        Dim post_response As String = responseStream.ReadToEnd()

        ' the response string is broken into an array
        Dim response_array As Array = Split(post_response, post_values("x_delim_char"), -1)

        ' the results are output to the screen in the form of an html numbered list.
        'resultSpan.InnerHtml += "<OL>" & vbCrLf
        'For Each value In response_array
        '    resultSpan.InnerHtml += "<LI>" & value & "&nbsp;</LI>" & vbCrLf
        'resultSpan.InnerHtml += "</OL>" & vbCrLf
        ' individual elements of the array could be accessed to read certain response
        ' fields.  For example, response_array(0) would return the Response Code,
        ' response_array(2) would return the Response Reason Code.
        ' for a list of response fields, please review the AIM Implementation Guide

Whatever the value of post_url is.  Setting this variable is not in the code you posted

There API is pretty easy to work with.  I'm building an eCommerce site right now, that is all Authorize.Net.   I ended up programming in the url and test url for to select the right one based on if we were testing in staging, or on production.

Works a champ :)
