    From a shell, what happens when you try:

    % telnet 80
    Or in other words, do you get an error? Establishing connectivity first is important.

      Thanks to all

      Yep i could not telnet so I had to change internet options on the server to not default to port 80, this was wrong !!

    does your dns server work? Try 'ping'. or
    perl -e 'print join ".", unpack "C4", (gethostbyname "services.soaplit")[4]'

    Be sure that you have the 'http://', or better yet, 'https://' at the beginning of your hostname.
