Plugin get_version thru GET request (1 post)

    I've been working with a wp ecommerce plugin that has a licensing extension. Using a url I can remotely active the license, check if the license is activated, and get the version information. Each of these work just fine for wp plugin products.

    If I do a get request (even just using a browser) for the first two, the data returned is a json object, eg: {"license":"valid","item_name":"Some Plugin"}. Not problem here. But when I do the call for check_version, I get nothing. The developer has confirmed thru a wp plugin that this feature is functioning and he gets a returned json object with all the relevant info. Him and I spent a week or two trying to troubleshoot this issue.

    It's obvious that it can't be a simple get request, using curl or some other api, because when put in a browser there's no return. So my question is this: is there some get request, http, or proxy setting/property that needs to be set to retrive this data? I'm just now learning about url get requests and such so I'm not even sure where to start looking.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
