I have a web service that has been running just fine... this morning, I went to try it and got the following exception when called from a C# program, which also worked last night:

System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: Server was unable to process request. ---> System.Net.WebException: The remote name could not be  resolved: 'www.findbookprices.com' at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetResponse()

When I test the web service stand-alone, it works; when I call it from my C# program, it fails...

Any ideas?

Oops...spoke too soon... tried to test again (stand-along) and now it's failing... here is the code:

        StringBuilder page = new StringBuilder();
        byte[] buf = new byte[8192];

        HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(@"http://www.findbookprices.com/search/?isbn=" + isbn);
        request.Method = "GET";
        request.KeepAlive = true;
        request.Timeout = 1000 * 60 * 5;  //  timeout of 15 minutes
       
        HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();

        Stream resStream = response.GetResponseStream();


Any ideas?
