I am a beginner when it comes to building web services and I'm not very fluent in C# so maybe there is a simple solution to this that I'm missing.

We're building a webservice to serve up some data from a server on our network to utilize elsewhere. It runs on IIS 6.0 and utilizes C#.

I'm able to get the service to pass me a DataSet successfully, but I can't get it to do much else. What I mean is it seems that since I've run the service IIS has configured some settings for my service that can't be changed in the code.

For example, I setup my namespace initially as "" and since then I've tried to change the namespace to something else, but when I try to consume it I get an error that includes the original namespace(which is not in my code anywhere!).

Also, one of my WebMethods is named getFacPatients. As long as I leave it with that name it works, but if I change the name to ANYTHING else it stops working (I update the code on the consumer side obviously but it still doesn't work).

I also can't seem to add any more WebMethods that will work successfully, only the getFacPatients method works.

Does IIS store settings about your web service somewhere after it's been run for the first time? If, so how/can I reconfigure it? I just don't know what else to think... Thanks!
