Hi.

I have written a web service to that passes parameters to another web service.  When pass the parameters via the URL, the data is passed successfully, but when I am passing it via my C# web service, I get an error.  Code below:

Uri address = new Uri("http://10.20.30.40:8841/webservice/test1.php");

                        HttpWebRequest request = WebRequest.Create(address) as HttpWebRequest;

                        request.Method = "POST";
                        request.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded";

                        StringBuilder data = new StringBuilder();
                        data.Append("source=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(strCompany));
                        data.Append("&user=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(strusername));
                        data.Append("&password=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(strpassword));
                        data.Append("&phone_code=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(strPhoneCode));
                        data.Append("&phone_number=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(strCellNumber));
                        data.Append("&first_name=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(strFirstName));
                        data.Append("&last_name=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(strLastName));

                        byte[] byteData = UTF8Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(data.ToString());
                        request.ContentLength = byteData.Length;
                        using (Stream postStream = request.GetRequestStream())
                        {
                            postStream.Write(byteData, 0, byteData.Length);
                        }

Open in new window


The error that I get says :System.Net.WebException: Unable to connect to the remote server
But when I put the URL in my browser, it works.  Am I missing something?

I noticed that below code should have @

Uri address = new Uri(@"http://10.20.30.40:8841/webservice/test1.php");


Additionally, it may expect the credentials to access. One of below code blocks could be used.


request.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials

Open in new window

or

request.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(xxx,xxx);
request.PreAuthenticate = true;

Open in new window
