Re: Problem with POST in HTT API

Hello Scott,

the very same data (from the very same HTTP_URL_Encoder) works perfectly when I submit a GET! Thus it simply cannot be the data. This is what baffles me. Apparently the data POSTed arrives differently form the one sent by GET. It's getting tough for me to debug as I have no access to the receiving side, unless I fly to South Africa and they let me play with their servers.What's in the debug log, is perfectly correct. Apparently, though, it does not arrive as such at the receiving end. I am clueless.

Knowing the facts, though, might help to figure out what is done *differently* for GET and POST.  Apparently there is something which leads to the problem. Um... does anyone know a packet sniffer for the iSeries? On my PC I could easily find out what is going wrong, but...
