Visual Studio Port for a WebService

I have run into a problem with WebServices and Visual Studio where it places a port in various places within my code. eg: app.config and various other locations.

Is there anyway to get Visual Studio update this port to the current solution port on each build? (There are 2 other developers working on this WebService and the conflict in ports is causing some issues)

You can force VS to use a specific port for each build.... if all 3 of you use the same port, I think that will give you what you need.

Its held in the properties of the project.

theres 2 steps

first select "Use Dynamic ports" to false --> this will enable the 'port number' text box --> then type in a common port number that each programmer can use

hope that helps you
