The billing via Paypal works fine. I'm just trying to get IPN running for the first time.

However...although I've switched on IPN I'm getting no feedback i.e. my subsequent code on the ipn page is not running.

How can I tell if Paypal is really carrying out the IPN? The payment process seems to function just the same even if I take the ipn page away! Confused!

I'm using vb.net/code behind. ('Addhit' is my function for logging activity to db.)
Code follows...

Thanks and Regards

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
Dim Payment_status, objHttp,str,OrderID
Dim strSQL2 As String

'read post from Paypal system and add 'cmd'
str = Request.Form
OrderID = Request.Form("item_number")
Dim Txn_id As String = Request.Form("txn_id")
Payment_status = Request.Form("payment_status")
str = str & "&cmd = _notify-validate"
objHttp = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP")
objHttp.open("POST", "https:www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr", False)

Dim item_name = Request.Form("item_name")
Dim Receiver_email = Request.Form("receiver_email")
Dim intRotaID = Convert.ToInt32(Request.Form("item_number"))
Dim intInvnum = Request.Form("invoice")
Dim intQty = Convert.ToInt32(Request.Form("quantity"))
Payment_status = Request.Form("payment_status")
Dim decPrice = Convert.ToDecimal(Request.Form("payment_gross"))
Txn_id = Request.Form("txn_id")
Dim Payer_email = Request.Form("payer_email")

If (objHttp.status <> 200) Then
addHit("Paypal", "NOT 200")
'HTTP error handling
ElseIf (objHttp.responseText = "VERIFIED") Then
addHit("Paypal", "VERIFIED")
ElseIf (objHttp.responseText = "INVALID") Then
addHit("Paypal", "INVALID")
End If
objHttp = Nothing
'Put user code to initialize the page here
End Sub
