Perform transactions using web service in .NET

Hi Experts,

I am using a web service that accepts files from registered users running in .NET.  

Client application calls a web method that validates the user.  Upon successful validation, the application then sends the file over (probably through another web method calls).  I need to link the file to the validated user.  But due to the “stateless” nature of web connection, the session of the first web call (validation) will cease when the web method returns.  

Is there a way to maintain a persistence connection when performing these 2 tasks?  
Any other solutions to this problem will be appreciated.

transactions cannot be performed in .net 1.0 web services. however, you can use cookie to maintain state somewhat in the application.....
check this example...

but actually i would modify webservices suck that the second call recieves a parameter returned from the first call....
