I'm trying to run a website that is hosted in a Windows Server 2003 machine (IIS 6). This site is developed in ASP (not ASP.NET!) and access a webservice in a remote machine.

My question is: do I need to install SOAP toolkit on that server, or being IIS 6, the toolkit is already there?

Thanks in advance,

I need more details:

Where is this remote machine?
Do you have access to that remote machine? Does your web user have access to that machine?
Can we get some snipits of your code?
Can you view the page before it access the DB?
Does it work localy http://localhost/<PATH>/<PAGE.ASP> ?
What type of DB, MySql, Access, ect.?

Any other details would be great :)

Thanks for your answer. As this was very urgent, I decided to simply go ahead and install SOAP Toolkit. Now, everything is working beautifully.

I now that SOAP Toolkit is, let's say, about to die, replaced and enhanced by .NET Framework. So, in a near future, I might need to "upgade" my application to .NET.

In the meantime, the SOAP Toolkit and my application with ASP is working.
