Hi Paul,

Unless I've missed something I followed your steps to the letter and its 
not working. Authorizenet won't accept any transactions in this manner. 
Mind you, I'm using a previously generated Trans key that is currently 
in use by our old storefront that we're wanting to get away from. Could 
this have anything to do with that? I don't want to generate a key 
because that will kill the current transkey that is in use.
