I am trying to access a 3rd party Apache/Axis web service where I am required to submit an HTTP header with username and password attached.
I have added the service/reference no problem using the VB.Net add service reference. this has given a local object for their service.
I have already tried what feels like hundreds of ideas from online, none of which have done what I wanted and alot are very advanced and I am struggling to understand how to implement the code.
This is the code I have been trying so far which returns the error from the myService.ProcessMethod, where I pass an XML converted to string format.
The ERROR return is:- The request failed with an empty response.
Dim TPUsername As String = "username"
Dim TPPassword As String = "aPassWord"
Dim myService As New thirdParty.SvcService
myService.PreAuthenticate = True
Dim netCredential As New NetworkCredential(TPUsername, TPPassword)
Dim credentials As ICredentials = netCredential.GetCredential(uri, "Basic")
myService.Credentials = credentials
Any help appreciated here guys, as I am demented by it.
