Hi all,

I have a Web Service developed in c# and i uploaded to my server and i also can make the requests propertly.

The problem is that the WS is visible to anyone and i wanted to make it private, so that only the pages under my domain can see it and use it.

I hope u can help me with this

Thx a lot

Regards,

Daniel Peralta

One thing that you can do is create a seperate web site in IIS and publish your web service in this site. This site will not be having an external URL. Now you can access this web service by using http://localhost:portnumber/webservice.asmx

yes, i think you can by setting the following in web.config, this will deny requests to service url :
<location path="yourwebservice.asmx">
    <system.web>
      <authorization>
        <deny users="*" roles="*"/>
      </authorization>
    </system.web>
  </location>

thx both for the reply,

TechTiger007 i cant do this because I only have rights to add, delete and modify files (including the web.config), but the server is in other country and i access with dreamweaver

HeoQue: I add the lines to the web.config file and now i cant access it.

_____

I had a .swf in the root and it is looking for the service (i attach the as3 code), when it was public it works great, but after adding the lines to the web.config file it says (local):

Error opening URL 'http://test.universalmusica.com/ecards.asmx?WSDL'
Error #2044: ioError no controlado: text=Error #2032: Error de secuencia. URL: http://test.universalmusica.com/ecards.asmx?WSDL

So i upload the swf to the site and wheen i trid to access a methos I got the error:

Error #2044: ioError no controlado: text=Error #2032: Error de secuencia. URL: http://test.universalmusica.com/ecards.asmx?WSDL
      at alducente.services::WSDL/getWSDL()
      at alducente.services::WebService/connect()
      at arecard_fla::Ecard_9/sendData()


I hope you can help me ...thx 4 all

yes, the trick i proposed when you are consuming the code from an aspx page code-behind, (ASPNET user bypasses web.config authorization) but flash doesn't
