If the host is telling you they have registered a hit from your script, are they able to send you any log of that request? I would specifically look for any error messages etc.

Try sending a POST request via the system telnet utility to eliminate your script entirely.

    I am running this script from a hosted Windows server. So I cannot run a telnet. But, what I just did was bring the script to my local machine which has IIS and ActivePerl installed. Install the SSLeay and tested the script locally. It ran just fine which tells me it's the hosters server which is causing the problem. I am going to call them now. Hopefully, they can get to the bottom of this, else I will have to switch servers.
      (Longshot guess, but I've been burned by this in the past too)

      Have you tried connecting via a numeric IP address ? Windows has been known to have some nasty resolver caching behaviors which, if not registry hacked properly, can cause it to hang onto a bad DNS resolution for a long time...so if your target has changed its IP address recently, the Windows resolver cache may not have flushed yet.
