Finding referrer in a WebService

I am developing a Web Service and I would like to know where the request to the web service came from. How can I do this? The UrlReferrer is always nothing.

I find it hard to believe that there is no way of knowing who sent the request to the web service.

    AFAIK, this is not possible with web services.
