Sending XML/SOAP using script

two questions
1)Can i send XML file to other server via SOAP using unix script if yes please
give an example

2) The other server wants to response back to our server and for that they need
some kind of listener any idea if we can do that in script too.

You can use curl from the command line our if you have access you can use php cli it makes it easy. When I get back to my computer I will post examples.

Hi Thomas,
what about option 2) for response back do i need to setup some kind of listener.

Thomas WheelerCommented:
here is a link to the bash example. I am not sure what you are attempting but it sounds like a web services is what you are looking for. This will allow the other server to respond back.
