Unhappy Passing encrypted data through a form to an ASP

I am having severe difficulties so any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to pass a 512 byte string of encrypted (non-ANSI) characters to an ASP via a form. Before I put the string into the hidden text field it is 512 long. After I put it into the hidden text field it is 507 long.

I think it is because of the URL encoding which happens behind the scenes which strips out invalid characters.

When I pass the string to the ASP and try to retrieve information from it, the data is corrupt. The string conisists of a number of fields and a delphi activeX object is used to access it. The encryption/decryption algorithm has been proven in previous products and so it has been ruled out as the source of the problem.

If the problem is the URL encoding, how do I get around it. Otherwise, does anyone have any idea what I should do or how else I can pass the string to the ASP.

Welcome to the forum

Use the POST method if you are not already as GET could be the cause of the problem
