I got lost somewhere in your description. Here are the steps I would
expect to access someone's stock quote server:

 * go to Yahoo or InternetWhitePages.com (oops, looks like a porn
 * go to the stock quote services category
 * click on AutomatedStockQuotes.com
 * go to their web page. Check their service agreement, give them my
credit card number, etc.
 * download a service description (WSDL or IDL or REST-DL or something)
 * plug that into my programming language to get an "API" for the
service which hopefully hides the details of the transaction
 * start making calls from the programming language
