Yes I just realized that! :) Thanks for the help all... It returned the xml ouput successfully just as it would return an html page via the HTTP protocol. Success. :)

Wireshark is probably calling it HTTP/XML just because it's a HTTP

of the XML document instead of just displaying it as raw data. Don't be
thrown off by this.
