There is web procedure:

create procedure dba.sp_authentication( 
  RequestXml xml,
  urlSpec long varchar,
  certificatekey long varchar ) 
url '!urlSpec' 
type 'HTTP:POST:application/xml' 
set 'HTTP(VERSION=1.1)' 
certificate '!certificatekey'

The login and password are variables in the URL, for example:

remote_idle_timeout = '0'.

If the request is executed in SQLAnywhere/, then there is no error.
If the request is executed in SQLAnywhere/, then the following error occurs:

The secure connection to the remote host failed: The connection was
closed from the other side
SQLCODE=-990, ODBC 3 State="HY000".

WEb log (-zoc) does not show the error and is completely identical for both builds:

[connid = 1, 01/22 14:30:08.113, RESPONSE]

Any suggestions?

I assume that the error was due to the fact that the web-service returns an empty Body in the response.
Probably, this behavior is acceptable for SQLAnywhere/ and is unacceptable for SQLAnywhere/, that is, it triggers the exception (i.e. SQLCODE=-990).
ps I processed only the Status:

select * ... with(attribute long varchar,value long varchar) ...
select value ... where lower(attribute) = 'status'

and did not pay attention to the Body in the response.
