405 error using curl/php

This is a first post to the list for me, so hi all.

I am running into an issue with php curl while attempting to post to a remote
server. I have tried finding a solution in the archives without any luck.

Below is the script (with some comments) which ends up producing a 405 on the
post. This is based off of a script I found which was I think in the examples
here (ebay_login.php) by Imran Khalid imranlink_at_hotmail.com in 2004

I have used the 'liveHTTPHeaders' plugin for Firefox to ensure I have the proper
form info being posted.

I would be very grateful for any support as I am new to using curl, and I seem
to be running in circles on this one.
