I'm getting the above error on a simple xmlhttp script to test <BR>getting a webpage from the internet. My code is copied from one of the xml articles on this site. <BR><BR>The code works internally but when i try and use it externally it falls foul of the 2nd proxy we have to get thru to get to the internet. Strangely it gets thru the first proxy.<BR><BR>What is this length required and how do I implement it in the script.<BR><BR>I am completely stumped by this. so any help would be much appreciated.
