    Insert from URL Connection Failed httpspost



      Insert from URL Connection Failed httpspost


      I am trying to access Con-Way XML web service for Rate Quoting. When using the Google Chrome Extension Postman I am able to successfully receiving a Quote via XML using a https post.

      When using a Web Viewer or Insert From URL in File Maker Pro I am not successful with a httpspost. 

      Below is an example of the request I am trying to make within the Webviewer or Insert from URL.

      httpspost://www.con-way.com/XMLj/X-Rate?RateRequest=<RateRequest><OriginZip country='us'>44483</OriginZip> <DestinationZip country='us'>33179</DestinationZip><ChargeCode>P</ChargeCode> <EffectiveDate>6/26/15</EffectiveDate> <Item> <CmdtyClass>50</CmdtyClass> <Weight unit='lbs'>411</Weight> </Item> <Item> <CmdtyClass>100</CmdtyClass> <Weight unit='lbs'>511</Weight> </Item> <Accessorial>SSC</Accessorial> <Accessorial>DNC</Accessorial><Accessorial>GUR</Accessorial></RateRequest>

      If you perform the same https post request using a third party utility like Google Chrome extension Postman it is successful.  

      Any help would be appreciated!

          I responded to the same post on FB, but the gist is, you can't make calls to Con-way via insert from url or via web viewer. Con-way web services require custom data and authentication in the http header. You'll need to use a plugin like Troi URL or MBS to make the request. Alternatively, take a look at our Con-way solution as it's already got support for rating, BOL generation and tracking.
