Hi,
   
    I'm writing a WCF Web Service that is hosted in IIS 6 using C#.  I will be transfering an XML document within my SOAP message and I need to know how large the XML document can be before it can nolonger be transmitted.  I have attached a snippet of my web.config file.  I way I have it setup now, I believe I can transmit 10 MBytes.  Do I just change this to a larger value to be able to send files over 10 MBytes?

Thanks!
<basicHttpBinding>
<binding name="WebServicebasicHttpBindingConfig" maxBufferSize="10000000" maxReceivedMessageSize="10000000">
<readerQuotas maxStringContentLength="10000000" maxArrayLength="10000000"/>
<security mode="None">
<transport clientCredentialType="None"/>
</security>
</binding>
</basicHttpBinding>

I am not sure if its possible or not, but if you want to send a data worth 10MB or so, use SOAP with attachments.

I can't use SOAP with attachments.  Is there a way to do this without SOAP attachments?


Thanks!
