SOAP4R WSDL Factory is horked! Anyone want to comment on wh


#1

Hello,

I spent hours trying to find a solution to why some basic code that
was actually pulled directly from page 630 of the O’Reilly Ruby
Cookboook.

require ‘soap/wsdlDriver’
wsdl = ‘http://services.xmethods.net/soap/urn:xmethods-delayed-
quotes.wsdl’
driver = SOAP::WSDLDriverFactory.new(wsdl).create_rpc_driver
puts ‘Stock Price: %.2f’ % driver.getQuote(‘TR’)

Why would this not work as expected on a Fedora Core 5 box? I get this
error:

/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:562:in `initialize’: Connection refused

  • connect(2) (Errno::ECONNREFUSED)

    from soap_test.rb:17

Its so basic. And yet it seems like there is no one other than myself
getting this error. At least I can’t find a single peep from anything
on Google.

Thanks,

Read the error message you posted. Your connection is refused in the
first place.

Thanks I just tested on another machine at home and found that you are
right. It works fine. Its the firewall at work thats causing the
problems. The thing that confused me was the non-wsdl version works
fine. If I do it like this it will work fine behind our work firewall

require ‘soap/rpc/driver’
driver = SOAP::RPC::Driver.new(‘http://services.xmethods.net/soap/’,
‘urn:xmethods-delayed-quotes’)
driver.add_method(‘getQuote’, ‘symbol’)
puts ‘Stock Price: %.2f’ % driver.getQuote(‘TR’)

So that confused me. But I just noticed running through IRB that the
WSDL redirects to a different port. We block all ports except for 22,
23, and 80.

Thanks for pointing that out. It was driving me crazy trying to make
that work.
