Timeout Occurs when the rss feed in accessed from an internal page

We have a website set up in the fashion of www.XXX.com.  The application is using ASP.NET's MVC framework

We've installed blog engine as an ASP.NET application in www.XXX.com/blog.

All work beautifully... until we try and parse the RSS feed coming from www.XXX.com/blog/syndication.axd to the homepage located at www.XXX.com.  The homepage needs to ultimatly grab that internal feed, process it and display the latest posts.  We can access the RSS feed without issue from an external source so all is working fine.

I can't quite put my finger on what is happening.  For whatever reason, internally it does not recognize /blog/syndication.axd as a viable internal resource, it appears to time out.  I've added an assembly reference to he .axd resource in my Visual Studio project, and still, I cannot seem to get the home page code to recognize the stream as XML and use it.

has anyone succesfully got the aboe scenerio working?  Any suggestons?
