I am doing a standard cfhttp post and get this when I try and post.
      <cfhttp
        url="https://services.someurl.com/Data/page.aspx"
                method="post"  result="queryX" >
             <cfhttpparam type="formfield"  name="affiliate_id" value="123">
             <cfhttpparam type="formfield"  name="password" value="456">
             <cfhttpparam type="formfield"  name="service" value="Lookup">
        </cfhttp>
            
      <cfdump var=#queryX#>

Result:
struct
Charset       [empty string]
ErrorDetail       I/O Exception: peer not authenticated
Filecontent       Connection Failure
Header       [empty string]
Mimetype       Unable to determine MIME type of file.
Responseheader

How do you authenticate with the service? Via the details posted or do they provide a certificate?

Are you hard coding the cfhttpparam values? Do they have any non alpha characters in them?

When I use this :  and place in a web browser i can see info i need:
https://services.someurl.com/Data/page.aspx?affiliate_id=123&password=456&service=LOOKUP

I get the page and the xml data I am looking for.
I am attempting to use cfhttp to grab the filecontent and return as xml

the page returns:

<TheData>
<Year>1981</Year>
<Year>1982</Year>
<Year>1983</Year>
<Year>1984</Year>
</TheData>

You can use the keytool to try importing the URLs certificate:

Using URLDecode or URLEncodeFormat around the the values to make sure they are being sent exactly how you need them to be. Usually a problem if there are non alpha chars in the values.

Ok here is process :

Add to keystore coldfusion:

Navigate to url click on lock click details tab
click copy or download.

save to C:\ColdFusion9\runtime\jre\lib\security

open cmd prompt: put in :
cd C:\ColdFusion9\runtime\jre\bin

This puts you in that directory then run:

C:\JRun4\jre\bin>
keytool -importcert -v -alias wa-cert -file C:\ColdFusion9\runtime\jre\lib
\security\CERTFILENAME.cer -keystore C:\JRun4\jre\lib\security\cacerts -storepass
