Why "(500) Internal Server Error" throwed?

Hi,

When I am using the fowllowing code to open page
http://spaces.msn.com/members/mailcall/
....
try{
string url = http://spaces.msn.com/members/mailcall/;
HttpWebRequest httpReq = null;
HttpWebResponse httpResp = null;
httpReq = (HttpWebRequest )WebRequest.Cre ate(url);
httpResp = (HttpWebRespons e) httpReq.GetResp onse();
}
catch(WebExcept ion ex)
{
....
}
....
I always got an WebException which says "The remote server returned an
error: (500) Internal Server Error". But actually if you open that page in
IE, it can be opened without any problem. How can I open this page in my
program and get the html source?

Any help would appreciate!

When I go to that address, IE redirects me to
http://spaces.msn.com/mailcall/. Have you tried connecting to that address
rather than the one you have been?

You don't send any HTTP header on which spaces.msn.com may rely on, like
User-Agent or Accept-Language. Try to send the same HTTP headers like a browser
(e.g. IE6) does. You can use tools like Fiddler to capture the HTTP traffic.

Hi, I'm really going mad about this! Currently I'm designing a student course on web services. Because I want them to understand what's really going on when web services correspond with each other (or other consumers) via SOAP, I want to generate SOAP-messages in XML manually and send it via POST-method to the hosting server. But whenever I try to use HttpWebRequest-Class to get a response from a webservice, I get an "Internal Server...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
