xml-rpc+php+socket --> UPS online tool


I am trying to make a php script to calculate the shiping charge
automatically by communicating to UPS online tool.

In order to do that, I used:
1. XML-RPC implemented by Keith Devens
2. PHP Version 4.3.3 w/ '--with-openssl'
3. The code below is for testing to see if I can communicate to UPS;
but no luck.
4. looks like the code successfully open the socket and send xml to
5. but I dont' get anything back or retreiving the response is
6. here is my code
7. Please somebody fix me.

/* Include the library */
include ( "kd_xmlrpc. php" );

/* Define variables to find the rpc server script */
$site = "www.ups.com:44 3";
$location = "/ups.app/xml/AV";
$upsAccessLicen seNumber = "myAccessLiscen seNumber"; //
2BAADC11591CC24 8
$upsUserID = "myID";
$upsPassWord = "myPW";
$upsXpciVersion = "1.0001";
function XMLRPC4UPSAV_re quest($city, $state=NULL, $zip=NULL){

global $site, $location, $upsAccessLicen seNumber, $upsUserID,
$upsPassWord, $upsXpciVersion ;

list($site, $port) = explode(':', $site);
if(!is_numeric( $port)){$port = 80;}

echo $site . "<br>" . $port . "<p>";

//Access Request
$accessData["AccessRequ est"]["AccessLicenseN umber"] =
$upsAccessLicen seNumber;
$accessData["AccessRequ est"]["UserId"] = $upsUserID;
$accessData["AccessRequ est"]["Password"] = $upsPassWord;

$accessData = XML_serialize($ accessData);

// Address Validation Request
$avData["AddressValidat ionRequest"]["Request"]["TransactionRef erence"]["CustomerContex t"]
= "AV TEST";
$avData["AddressValidat ionRequest"]["Request"]["TransactionRef erence"]["XpciVersio n"]
= $upsXpciVersion ;
$avData["AddressValidat ionRequest"]["Request"]["RequestAct ion"] =
$avData["AddressValidat ionRequest"]["Address"]["City"] = $city;

if(isset($state ))$avData["AddressValidat ionRequest"]["Address"]["StateProvinceC ode"]
= $state;
if(isset($zip)) $avData["AddressValidat ionRequest"]["Address"]["PostalCode "]
= $zip;

$avData = XML_serialize($ avData);

// combine Access Request & AV Request
$data = $accessData . $avData;

$conn = fsockopen ($site, $port); #open the connection

if(!$conn){ #if the connection was not opened successfully
echo "Failed";
$headers =
"POST $location HTTP/1.0\r\n" .
"Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded\r\n" .
"Content-Length: " . strlen($data) . "\r\n\r\n";

fputs($conn, $headers);
fputs($conn, $data);

$response = "";
while(!feof($co nn)){ $response .= fgets($conn, 1024); }

#strip headers off of response
$data = XML_unserialize (substr($respon se, strpos($respons e,
"\r\n\r\n")+4)) ;

return $data;

Hi Ray...a while ago you explained an elegant solution to enable me to CREATE and EDIT existing tables and queries inside my online access 2000 database.... could you provide refresher links on this or possibly some starter code? I am just so sick of the syncronization problems that come into play when you adjust underlying tables and queries offline and then have to overwrite the live database? Many thanks Jason

Hello, just as an introduction: I'm not a developer by profession, I just need a solution for this within the scope of a single project... What I am looking for is basically a tool (usable for non-developers) to (semi-)automatically create a relational database schema (MySQL) from an ..xsd schema (and vice-versa) as well as to generate entries into the database from an XML document (and vice-versa).

Hi, we have a number of clients that range from corporates to single users. Currently our applications are written in MS Access.

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,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
