HTTP POST Firewall Work around? - PayPal IPN


I'm trying to set-up a PayPal Instant Payment Notification backend to a
site. The problem is that I cannot post back to PayPal using
"fsockopen( )" since my service provider (1and1.co.uk) blocks outgoing
HTTP connections because this "binds a port".

Does anyone know any workaround at all?
Have other people using IPN just used fsockopen?
is cURL an option? (I assume not but I have no experience whatsoever
with it).
Someone else mentioned IFRAMES once??

Thanks in advance...

(Slightly doomed...) Adam

Hi All, I could do with some assistance... I am working on an ecommerce site in vb.net (aspx) I have built all my pages that perform the checkout process and gets to a summary screen where you check your data prior to making payment. The problem I have is that the external payment provider requires that I POST (GET is not allowed) the data to them where there site takes over and when complete returns back to the my site.

Hello, I am posting some credit card info to the payment server via a similar code. My code is written in VB.NET but uses the same approach. At the end however I do a response.write(streamReader.ReadToEnd()); ---------------------------------- string stringPost = Request.Form.ToString(); // remember a post is essentially a string delimited in a special way

I am creating a form on the server that I want to POST to a URL that's being called with Server.Transfer(). What's the simplest way to do that? A little background: I'm programming buttons that link to PayPal's shopping cart. PayPal wants an HTML form with data about the product selected (including price), and they provide sample HTML to create a hidden form to transmit the data when the 'Add to cart' button is clicked. It would be...

I want to programmatically create some POST data on a web server, then pass that data to another web page that the server calls, using Server.Transfer(). What's the best way to do that? I'm programming some buttons that link to PayPal's shopping cart. The shopping cart needs a bunch of data about the item being added, including price. PayPal's sample markup puts the data in a hidden form, which the button submits. I'm concerned about...

Hello, I'm building a simple shopping cart to work with PayPal. I'd like to have the user post his basket to my page, validate the input, then redirect him _with his validated form data_ to PayPal using header("Location:"). I could just have the user submit his form to PayPal, but then I don't have any control over what he submits (tweaking the form is easy). I can include the form data as a search string in the redirect URL but that creates...
