You don't say what version of Universe you are on but if it is 10.n then the 
default http version is 1.0 most web services I have accessed need version 1.1 
so you will need to use :-

STATUS = setHTTPDefault("VERSION", "1.1")

At 11.n it looks like the default version has been changed to 1.1

Yes, as I said, I've tested with curl and it works perfectly.  The problem
I have is not being able to clearly/cleanly see the raw text being sent by
the uv functions, in order to determine the difference in what curl sends
(success) and what the uv functions send (failure).  There may be certain
idiosyncratic parsing involved in the service I am trying to consume, but I
have no control over that.  With curl I can see the entire conversation if
the logging is set correctly.  With the uv functions, even with the highest
logging level, it doesn't appear that the logging is actually that complete
and exact.  I have never had the impression that it was.

I would love to be able to do it all in uv, but I only have control over
half of the conversation, and with the uv functions, I seem to have a bit
less than half.
