<CiscoIPPhoneExecute> error

Im wanting to send a <CiscoIPPhoneExecute> xml command to a 7921G phone. When i send the command, the phone shows "Host Not Found" and the response from my stream say "The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error." I want to write this in c# but could do it in Java also. This used to work for me a while back but it is not anymore. Any help would be appreciated!


My Code:


WebResponse resp = null;

string ErrorCode = "";

string ResponseXML = "";

string pushXML = "<CiscoIPPhoneExecute>";

pushXML += "<ExecuteItem Priority=\"0\" URL=\"Play:Vibe.raw\"/>";

pushXML += "</CiscoIPPhoneExecute>";

pushXML = "XML=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(pushXML);

string PhoneURL = string.Format("http://{0}/CGI/Execute", "MyIPAddress");

HttpWebRequest req = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(PhoneURL);

req.Method = "POST";

req.AllowAutoRedirect = false;

req.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded";

req.Credentials = GetCredentials("MyUsername", "MyPassword");

byte[] bytes = null;

bytes = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(pushXML);

Stream outputStream = req.GetRequestStream();

outputStream.Write(bytes, 0, bytes.Length);




resp = req.GetResponse();

Stream s = resp.GetResponseStream();

StreamReader stm = new StreamReader(s);


if (stm == null)


     "Timed out or no response!";




          ResponseXML = stm.ReadToEnd();
