Hi ,

I have an ajax code which works well in IE. I receive the responseText and thus the alert messages. However, i receive no responseText in Firefox.

The code snippet is as follows.

function pingip()
{
var ipaddress=document.baseform1.serviptxt.value;
var xmlHttp; 
                try 
                {

                    xmlHttp=new XMLHttpRequest(); 

                } catch (exception) 
                {                               
                                try 
                                {

                                     xmlHttp=new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP"); 

                                } catch (exception) 
                                { 
                                        try 
                                        { 

                                            xmlHttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP"); 

                                        } catch (exception) { 
                                            alert("Your browser does not support AJAX!"); 
                                            return false; 
                                        }
                                }
        }       
        alert("Pinging the Ip. Please wait.");
        xmlHttp.onreadystatechange=function()
        {                               

                                if(xmlHttp.readyState==4)
                                {       
                                            var responseText = xmlHttp.responseText;    //is shown blank in firefox.
                                            if(responseText=="Success")
                                            {
                                            alert("Reply received! Server is up.");
                                            returncode=false;
                                            }   
                                            else if(responseText=="Failure")
                                            {
                                            alert("Error in connection.");
                                            returncode=false;
                                            }   

                                }

        }
        xmlHttp.open("GET", "PingIP?ipaddress=" + ipaddress, true); 
        xmlHttp.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "text/xml");
        xmlHttp.send(null); 

}

Could anyone help me solve this problem.

Thanks a ton in advance.
