connecting to web service through asp classic

I can connect to a web service via asp.net, but my client is using asp
classic. In asp.net I do something very simple along the lines of:
CmsApi cmsService = new CmsApi();
Authenticate auth = new Authenticate();
auth.userName = userName.Text;
auth.passWord = passWord.Text;
AuthenticateResponse authrep = new AuthenticateResponse();
authrep = cmsService.Authenticate(auth);
String response = authrep.@return;
result.Text = response;

And I get a valid response. in asp classic I try to do this:
oSOAP.ClientProperty("ServerHTTPRequest") = True
oSOAP.mssoapinit("http://www.urltothewebservice.com/webservice?wsdl")
Set auth = Server.CreateObject("oSOAP.Authenticate")
auth.userName = ""
auth.passWord = ""
results = oSOAP.Authenticate(auth)
response.write results

But I get an error saying that server.createobject failed. How do I
create complex objects like Authenticate and AuthenticateResponse that
are created automatically for me in .net in asp classic?

I've posted some links to relevant articles in the past.
I seem to recall 4GuysFromRolla had some good articles about it, so you
may
want to concentrate your google search on their site. IIRC, searching
for
"consume web service from classic asp" (no quotes) will give you some
relevant links.
