Thank you Francois It's unfortunately an existing API I need to interface with. The encoding is Base64, so I'll need to find a delphi lib to get it back to regular XML. I was hoping for some autmation with the process, but looks like it's going to be a few late nights.
Have a good easter all.

XML RPC is a remote procedure call (RPC) protocol which uses XML to encode its calls and HTTP as a transport mechanism. "XML-RPC" also refers generically to the use of XML for remote procedure call, independently of the specific protocol. ICS can help because the transport layer (HTTP) is already there for client and server side. Where to start ? Look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XML-RPC Once you understand the XML formatting, you use ICS to transport it. by the way, unless XML RPC is a requirement, there are much efficient ways of doing the same thing. One of the many is by using my other component library named MidWare (See my website). -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://lists.elists.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
