in reply to SOAP::Lite question
you should use example.com , its one of the official example hostnames :)
Also, you shouldn't use SOAP::Lite, seriously :) use SOAP::Simple or its daddy XML::Compile...
And now a tip, ddg://site:perlmonks.org soapenv SOAP::Lite -> SOAP::Lite and SOAP-ENV,
local $SOAP::Constants::PREFIX_ENV = "soapenv";
local $SOAP::Constants::PREFIX_ENC = "soapenc";
If that works, great -- probably the proper thing would be to set an appropriate $client->encoding($soap_12_encoding_URN);
Good luck, I hate soap :)
