    I am running my application in a linux server. You can check the configuration using the URL: I am using a web service to connect to a java web service for logging in . The URL of the java web service is "". Thats also working fine. When I am check that URL through a browser I am getting the desired results. I am using nusoap version 0.7.3.

    The code I am using is as follows:

    * This script is for signing in to the Kerala Water Authority Network *
    * In the back end we are connecting to a web service written in java *
    * Users have to enter their consumer id and password(if they are  *
    * already registered) for signing in.                              *

    But when I try to login using user name and password I am getting the following error:

    As our need is so urgent that I have to find a solution till tomorrow. I request you people to give me a solution ASAP
