405 method not allowed when calling ASP web service

I have an application that runs fine on my development machine locally that consists of a web service and a client application calling the web service.

When I move the client portion to another machine and use my dev machine (Windows XP Pro SP2, IIS 5.1) for the web service I get an error on the client app stating
"405 method not allowed" when attempting to call the web service.

I can pull up the web service web page and test it fine from the client machine, but when I run the client application I get this error.

I've searched for many fixes and already added POST and GET configs to the web.config file.  Also, I've re-installed ASP .Net on my dev machine through the aspnet_regiis -i.  My persmission are set to allow anonymous access and scripts are allowed to run.  I'm not sure what other security setting I can change.

Thanks for any help.

have you done the WSDL file for the client again - check that it is not pointing to localhost or the lopback address. you can see the end point towards the end of ther WSDL file.

WSDL file?

I'm not sure where I would find that.

The web services are referenced through my dev machines name so when deploying the client it should be calling it by name and not ip or loopback.  I can ping my dev machine and run it through the test page fine, using the machine name.

Also, I would get a 404 error if I didn't have it set correctly, right?

I'm an idiot, I had the client app referencing the web app correctly, but there is a class that I didn't have set correctly to reference the web service.  Thanks for the help.
