SOAP API - getting started

Is there any documentation that would help me get started using the SOAP API? I will not be using a library such

as PHP, etc, just making direct http posts from a C program using libcurl. I have done this before with Exchange Web Services, but with Zimbra I'm not sure how to get started - what URL do I post to? What is the Authorization token and how do I get one? Specific examples of how a POST should be formatted would be very helpful.

To get Authorization token you must call AuthRequest service

Neither of those links work.
"Must call AuthRequest service". See, this is why I posted my original question - I have no idea what you mean by that. Where is the documentation for AuthRequest?

A little further down the forum is a thread asking the same question about where to start with the documentation.

I
know you said you will not be using PHP but if you can read PHP code you can find pointers in the code for the Z-push Zimbra Backend - it uses curl to send SOAP requests to the server. Z-Push Zimbra Backend / Code / [r224] /zimbra-backend/branches/z-push-2
Search for AuthRequest to see how the request is formatted, then search for "function SoapRequest" to see how the requests are sent to the server.

@jmckay123:

These links are my example, not real link :)

You can see more document about zimbra's soap in here:
