Request using xml http object throws "Access is Denied" error

P: 2
Hi All,

In my excel programming, I am using XML http object (MSXML2.XMLHTTP.3.0).
Using this object when I try to send a request application throws an "Access
is Denied" error. Strange thing here is that the request absolutely works
fine on some systems with Excel 2003 and doesn't throw any error; but same
patch of code throws an error with Excel 2000, 2002, 2007 and even on some of
2003 systems.

Following is sample of code I am using
(just an example of req we send)
netHttpjspreq is an XML http object

sreqstring = "http://abc.com?sess=%25abc"

netHttpjspreq.Open "POST", sreqstring , False
netHttpjspreq.send

On second line of code application throws an error.

Can you please help me out with this?

Thanks,
Sangeeta

First off, have you verified that these URLs are indeed accessible from these other systems? It could be a firewall issue.

Have you tried sending static xmls through any other application, such as curl?

Yeah I did try to access that url with the HttpSendRequest API and with that it works fine. When I am trying to access that url it redirects 3 times to 3 different url and then finally I get the session id.
With xmlhttp object on my system (I have Excel 2003) it works fine; but on m/c with 2000, 2002, 2007 and even on some m/c with 2003 this method throws Access Denied error.

Thanks for replying to my query.
