Hi I am trying to use the PHP API client example and the SimpleQAPI.php class available under the client example. 


I am able to use this code to just login and logout. However, I am not able to use this code to make any other api call. 


url: returns Login Successfull message.


However similar other url to list ip doesn't work it gives me bad username password. doesn't work.


My code below: 



include_once "classes/SimpleQAPI.php";

$params = array('qlogin' => 'myqualysid',
   'connectTimeout' => 10,
   'timeout' => 59,
   'qpassword' => 'qualyspwd',
// 'qdomain' => '', // For example ''
    'qdomain' => '',
   'plogin' => 'xegftert',
   'ppassword' => 'xxxxxxx',
   'headers' => array('X-Requested-With: SimpleQAPI'),
   'purl' => 'http://myproxyurl',
   'pport' => '8080');
$SimpleQAPI = new SimpleQAPI($params);

// You have to use the login() method to be able to launch the view_xxx_list() methods
// For each request the answer is stored in $SimpleQAPI->resp
// This should print : 201x-xx-xxTxx:xx:xxZ Logged in
echo $SimpleQAPI->resp;


class SimpleQAPI
    // Params
    private $_connectTimeout;
    private $_timeout;
