The SOAP request headers depends on which is the web service url/method you are planning to invoke:

In general these are the request params required:
request.Headers.Add("SOAPAction", soapAction)  
request.Method = "POST"
request.Timeout = _timeout
request.ContentType = "text/xml; charset=utf-8"  [assuming you are going to send a xml as post data]
request.ContentLength = requestBytes.Length

You can find out the soapAction for a method by browsing the webservice url/method.
