Comment Check ftp://ftp.ieinc2.com/pub/surfer/cfx_surfer.dll -- I think it might be more up-to-date than yours, as the current error message for this error shows the entire HTTP data returned...

Other things to try --

  1. Make sure you are including the port in the machinename if Screensurfer is installed to run a different port than 80
  2. Make sure your
      remove the port
    if Screensurfer runs on port 80!
  3. Check your "Transaction=" attribute in the CFX_Surfer tag and make sure that it doesn't start with a forward slash (will break the call)
  4. Compile with trace at the Screensurfer server, clear the trace and then look at it after a failed transaction

Comment Regarding hint number 1 above ... does the port number need to be on the machine name in the CFX tag? Here is what I currently have in the tag:

Comment I followed your advice and downloaded the current cfx_surfer.dll and restarted the services. The IEULA service did not come down cleanly so I had to kill it. When I restarted everything, viola! ... back in business. I'm not sure if it was the new dll or the restart that fixed things, but as long as it is working! BTW -- this answers my previous question about where to put the port number...
