Hi there all.

I have a script that builds a curl string and sends it out to authorize.net.

The format looks correct but it does not work. The process running curl acts like it is working but if you do a netstat you see that it is closed_wait.

The author of the script says I need --enable-sockets in the php config. Well, I've seen some sites that do the same type of transactins that do not have that config setting.

My quesion is, do I infact need sockets enabled to run a curl based transaction?
