It's only for testing. but I'll leave it active till your hosting co sorts the problem out for you.

Great I'll send another service request in and use the functional and MS.disfunctional link to them. They just might figure it out by the end of this month.

Thanks much.

Thanks again, I sent them a follow up email.
Now it's only a matter of waiting and waiting then calling and calling.

It's a good start to show the code and the system is working.
Have a good one.

Sorry, The Status is 12031 and the dang connection to the remote server couldn't be established.
Test 3 Results: Error at 8/27/2009 7:08:35 AM
XML Status: 12031
Err.Number: 438
Err.Description: Object doesn't support this property or method
Err.Source: Microsoft VBScript runtime error
Err.Page: /testbotscout2.asp


This is from 4 days of testing and emails to dotster technical support.
(I know, you might be thinking, "You could change hosts") but...

I've found when we run into errors that are out of my control I need to code around them.

The XML error code is a time-out issue.
The Server and/or Database end to end (in this case server) is timing out just under 20 seconds.

The connection ran smoothly for weeks but now it just doesn't connect.
I'm guessing a server change or it could be a DNS/Router issue as well.

Thanks for your time working with me.

They've either updated or changed VBScript, as your problem is actually;

Code: [Select]
Err.Number: 438
Err.Description: Object doesn't support this property or method

You'll need to determine which line it's referring to if it isn't specifying one, as that will give you a pointer to the issue.

The Vb error occurs after the time-out which shows the XML.Status code.
Here's the order:
xml "GET" (establish connection)
Fails Status Code 12031 (Connection Dropped or Time-out)
It should have reported a status code of 200 (OK) just like any good Header should do.

The next error is caused from the xml.send because it is attempting to send after a "On Error Resume..." and it fines no channel to send the data so it says "Object Not Supported..."

Then that's it..

I sure would have rather used your db as a resource because it saves me time not having to add spammers and bots to my local list.

While all this testing was going on I set back in place my old screening system (asp app).

I could test your PHP code on one of my sites to see if it is only related to the VbScript'ing but that might take me a month of sunday's since PHP is a foreign language to me.

Sorry for taking so long, and apologies for the confusion.

If it will help, I wrote a PHP function you can use ;)
