    Unhappy Need help about using XMLHTTP

    Hi there:

    I am trying to use XMLHTTP to develop a simple platform independent application. It's a html file that sends a xml search string to a web server, gets returned search results and show the results.

    My code to use XMLHTTP:
    //send a search key and get back search results
    var xmlHttp = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
    xmlHttp.open("POST", url, false);
    xmlHttp.setRequestHeader ("MessageType", "Call");
    xmlHttp.setRequestHeader ("Content-Type", "text/xml");

    var xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM");
    xmlDoc.async= "false";
    xmlDoc.loadXML (xmlHttp.responseText);

    //display search results using xmlDoc

    code Note:
    url: a string of server url, such as http://www.google.com/api
    strSearch: a xml string containing a user entered search key

    My problem:
    The file works well from my local machine. I can successfully run the file in IIS folder or any other folders of my computer. However, when I upload the file into a remote server, there is always an access deny error. The error message is "Line 64, Error: Access deny". The error line is the first line of my above code. That is to create a XMLHTTP object. I searched W3C and MSN about the use of XMLHTTP, and found that both IE5+ and Netscap6 support the com. I can't figour out what's wrong.

    Can anybody help me to make it streight? Thanks in advance.
