AJAX POST failure

The need is for (1) AJAX POST, (2) cross-domain and (3) issued from one server to another.  To test the code I set up a simple ASP page with the AJAX call to a second page in this case in the same web site.  It fails at line 14 on the AJAX call doing the post, the exception caught at line 18 is error number minus 2147467259, the name of the exception is "Error" with no description or message.  How do I fix this to accomplish my 3 goals?

Calling page
<%@ Language = javascript%>
<%
function ajTrade(keepOn,opt,parm) { 
  var xmlHttp;
  xmlHttp=new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");

   xmlHttp.onreadystatechange=function() { processResponse(xmlHttp,opt) }
   var str="opt="+opt;
   for(i=2; i<arguments.length;){
     parm=arguments[i++];
     str+="&p"+(i-2)+"="+escape(parm);
   } 
   try {
     xmlHttp.open("POST",("ajTestReceive.asp"),(keepOn?true:false));
     xmlHttp.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
     xmlHttp.send(str);
   }
   catch (e) {
     var aaa=1;
     debugger
   }
}
function processResponse(xmlHttp,opt,txt) {
  if(xmlHttp.readyState==4) {
    if (xmlHttp.status == 200) {
      debugger
      var aaa=1;
    }
    else {
      debugger
      var aaa=1;
    }
  }
}

ajTrade(true,"testStr_1","testStr_2");
%>

Open in new window


receiving page, ajTestReceive.asp
<%@ Language = javascript%>
<!--#include file="iba_serverside.js"-->
<%
  Response.expires=-1;
debugger

  Response.write("");
  Response.End;
%>

Open in new window

@Slick812, that is Jscript to run on the server, not javascript to run in a browser.  It still might be wrong.  Here's a different version from Microsoft: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms766431%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

DaveBaldwin, it was the use of Msxml2.ServerXMLHTTP.6.0 that was needed, thx.
