No, its a local .vbs script. As I said, it used to actually work fine. And
it still does work fine if the page Im requesting is cached by the browser.

The only thing I can think of is some patch has restricted access to the
network for this component. There has been some security patches for this
component which could be exploited from IE if I recall correctly. Otherwise,
my transparent proxy could be interferring, but it used to work fine with
it, and as far as I know there havent been any changes to it.

I have googled around for some time before asking here, but with no luck.

I have sniffed the connection, and it is establishing a connection to the 
web server. However, my machine is "RST" ing the connection for some strange 
reason. I am behind a NAT which could be causing issues. However, as Ive 
mentioned, this same exact code worked fine 2 months ago and nothing has 
changed except the installation of SP2 and other patches. I have enquired if 
there has been changes to my transparent proxy, but my browser works fine, 
so in theory, so should the XMLHTTP component.
