Cannot Access an external Web Service from my ASP.Net Code. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a web application which is hosted in IIS 6. It will access an external web service provided by FedEx. I can access that WS when i browse through my IE. But when my code runs, it throws the following error,

    'A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond '

    I guess its something related to network settings. Not able to figure it out. While using IE, it uses an automatic configuration script.

    Please help me out to access the FedEx web service.
