Unfortunately, WININET is the only HTTP component that M$ is giving for
free. Not that they don't have the technology - they have it in the
"Site Server SDK" - but they are not giving it away.

I had also come across the same issue, and I also followed the suggestion
they make in that "kb" article (using their VB/WINSOCK component). My
understanding is that the WINSOCK component is a piece of crap that they
didn't even properly document.

>From M$ documentation:
"WinSock Control  Allows you to connect to a remote computer and
exchange data using either the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) or the
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)."

I also found no documentation about direct HTTP support. Meaning:
 - It is not a straight forward solution to use the WINSOCK control;
 - Maybe it is far from being the generic easyest way (I have better
   alternatives with Delphi);
 - And they would have done a better service just omitting the
   WINSOCK, since it sounds like a fake clue. (A component is usually not
   much better than the documentation about it. Some have at least the
   source code to act as documentation, but with this one I just felt

Anyway, good luck. You are probably going to need it.

Have fun,

Unless I'm misunderstanding what you are trying to do...

You aren't going to want to do any HTTP URLs using XML on the server-side:

The HTTP is built on top of WININET which does run under a service.
