I have a web Service written in .net and now having trouble with Port Forwarding to Make it Live for others to consume it. And since this would be installed on different server.

There is a Single application which is going to access this web services from different vendors.


Server-> vendor1 [Web Service 1]
Server-> vendor2 [Web Service 1]
Server-> vendor3 [Web Service 1]

Now is it possible for web services to work without any port forwarding. Something in concept of "OutBound Web Services"

    Accepted Solution

    Webservices work over HTTP (port 80), so they don't require port forwarding.

    My trouble is that these applications will be installed on different local machine, and they would not have Static IP address and then its difficult to get the Services readable from Main Server since its not a public IP Address. and Plus dont want these services to be open for all but for only one specific application on the Server.
