in reply to LWP 400 Bad Request on POST

This works for me:

use LWP::Simple;; $c = get 'https://wsnet.sendwordnow.com/SessionManagement/2010/05/Publ +icSessionManagementService.svc?wsdl';; print $c;; <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><wsdl:definitions name="PublicSe +ssionManagementService" targetNamespace="http://tempuri.org/" ...

    $c is undef when I try that. I'm guessing the proxy is screwing with the request somehow.

      Open a local port. Send the same request (from your browser) a) to that local port directly (temporarily disabling the proxy); b) and via the proxy. Compare the requests received.

        It's a corporate proxy so I cannot disable it.

        however I have made a little progress insofar as understanding the issue. not so much for how to fix it.

        i used ig's suggestion on wireshark to watch the packet transfers. First thing I noticed is that the browser is doing a CONNECT request, not a POST. When I switched to a CONNECT method in the script I immediately got a 200 return code. Still no content though.

        after re-checking the packet capture I saw that after the initial CONNECT and 200, the browser and server do a short handshake dance followed by several application data packets coming from the server to the browser. The LWP request doesn't capture any of that since (I guess) they aren't direct responses to the original request.

        Just in case you were curious...
