Hi, I created a web service and secure it using SoapExtention. I implemented code from this link. Now if I create proxy class from my other webapplication and call any webmethod of my webservice, I must provide username password to access any of its webmethod, otherwise it is throwing SOAP Exception which works fine. But now when I open this webservice locally using its URL, in Internet Explorer, like http://localhost/MyWebService/poservice.asmx, it shows me all webmethods and I can invoke any webmethod from here without using ...

Web Application and Web Service security
I have a web application that is implementing forms authetication and a web service using WSE 3.0 Direct Authentication with UsernameToken. I have tested each one independently and everything works as advertised. Great!  Now, the piece that I don't understand is how to get the password to setup the token. I can get the username.  For example: 1. The web.config file is setup to deny anonymous users.  2. When the default page is hit the user is directed to the login page. The login in page iplements's Login Control and is accessing the memb...

Calling a Web Service from a Web Service
Hello,I was looking for some feedback on calling a web service from within a web service. I've heard that it's not good practice (or not possible). I have a scenario where I think it might make some sense.Within our infrastructure, we've created a web service that handles incoming updates on the statuses of all processes. This has proven to be a good thing since it allows applications to communicate across server to make status updates. It's also used by third party developers and applications to communicate with our infrastructure.Along these lines ... we are planning to create a new compon...
