HELP! WebService not responding

I have a webservice that is being called by .NET clients and VB6 clients. VB6 clients are using SOAP Toolkit. After one client, either VB6 or .NET calls the webservice, the other client can't call the webservice anymore. I am not sure why this is happening but I need to resolve this issue quickly! Has anyone heard of this before? I think it may have to do with NameSpaces of the soap message? Is there anyway I can turn off namespaces in the webservice so that the webservice doesn't care?

Please help! Thank you!

is the webservice function using certain type of IO operation which is not closed by the first call.
e.g. assume you're writing to a log file

and when the web service is called, you open the log file and write the entry (but the log file is not closed)
when the second time it's called, the log file fails from being open for writing since it's locked by the previous call!
