[wp-hackers] How to export the wordpress posts using XMLRPC?

I tried this today.. (was busy with travelling for many past 2 weeks)
and it failed too. Advanced export did not come to help either... as
in the wxr/rss file that is getting generated and downloaded is in 0
bytes. I am confused and it is a tricky situation for me here and I do
not understand why the file is being in 0 bytes size? Am I missing
something here? Could it be do with any .htaccess changes or any file
changes? Both Wordpress export and Advanced export options fail in
generating/delivering the wxr file with a content.

Can someone please let me know what should be the next step for me?
