Hi Jonathan

Depending on the version of FM that you're using the Beezwax WebServices plugin, although although no-longer under development and not officially supported in 12 does function as expected, and if it will read the WSDL of the web service in question is a very easy way to get SOAP working in FM.

Failing that, I'd second Chris's view that you may well be better off writing an intermediary PHP layer - I've ended up having to do this for a number of clients in the past because of difficulties with the WSDL and/or security 'complication'.
