Thanks Scott,

That's actually the one I'm using right now. It creates the log and logs 
to it, but never sends out the reply. I guess it's working, but can't 
seem to find out why it's not sending out the response since nothing is 
getting logged elsewhere.

I've deleted the log and started over just in case it tests that, still 
no luck.
