Content-Type: text/xml
<max:QueryRESOURCES xmlns:max="http://www.vendor.com/projects">

Have you tried using the msxml2.xmlhttp object to handle the send and capture the response?
In the following example, I used testproject.com:80
Example:
    Dim strXML, oXML, strResponse
    Set oXML = CreateObject("msxml2.xmlhttp")
    oXML.Open "POST", "http://testproject.com:80/integration/os/resources", False
    oXML.setrequestheader "Content-Type", "text/xml"
    strXML = "<max:QueryRESOURCES xmlns:max=""http://www.vendor.com/projects"">"
    strXML = strXML & "<max:RESOURCES Query>"
    strXML = strXML & "<max:WHERE>upper(FIRSTNAME) like 'A%'</max:WHERE>"
    strXML = strXML & "</max:RESOURCES Query>"
    strXML = strXML & "</max:QueryRESOURCES>"
    oXML.Send strXML
    
    strResponse = oXML.responsetext
