problem communicating with the USPS Rate Calculator and getting the error information

What parameter do I need to add to the response request code shown below?

Here is the code on my checkout_failure page:

//WA eCart Include
if ($eCart1->IsEmpty()) {
$eCart1->redirStr = "cart.php";
$eCart1->cartAction = "RedirectIfEmpty";
// WA eCart Redirect
if ($eCart1->redirStr != "") {
header("Location: ".$eCart1->redirStr);
?><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<link href="WA_eCart/CSS/eC_Clean_Showplace_Arial.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

<div class="eC_Clean_Showplace_Arial" >
<h2>Transaction Not Completed</h2>
<h3 class="eC_InfoHeader" >We're sorry</h3>
<div class="eC_InfoContainer" >
<?php echo $_SESSION["WA_Store_Cart_USPS_FullRequest"]; ?>
<?php echo $_SESSION["WA_Store_Cart_USPS_FullResponse"]; ?>
<p class="eC_OrderInfo">Your transaction could not be completed.


...and the response:

Shipping Quote Failed
We're sorry

The error should be below:

Warning: var_dump() expects at least 1 parameter, 0 given in C:\xampp\htdocs\showplaceWebAssist\shipping_failure.php on line 32

Full Request: n/a
Full Response: n/a

the code you pasted looks to be the checkout failure page not the shipping failure page.

I dont see a var_dump in this code, but I can only guess it is empty.

try using:
<pre><?php @session_start(); var_dump($_SESSION); ?></pre>

NOTE, instead of pasting the code, attach the page
