web service path in asp.net

Hi,
I have created a webservice in VS.NET 2005  and deployed it in IIS (http://localhost/WebService1/Service.asmx)
Now i created a proxy in asp.net application and called a method like
WebApplication3.localhost.Service1 _service = new WebApplication3.localhost.Service1();
           string x = _service.HelloWorld();
           Response.Write(x);
==============
Keepign in mind if this has to be moved to Test Servers/ Production etc . Can I have this path in
web.config of asp.net application   <add key = "WebServicePath"  value = http://localhost/WebService1/Service.asmx

and then call it in asp.net application (Is it necessary in this case to create proxy) or how can I call this and invoke a method (please let me know the best way to deal with keeping in mind about deployment of asp.net and webservice)

The web reference can be either dynamic or static (a property). If dynamic, the url will be stored in the appsettings in the web.config for you with an appropriate name.
You also have the opportunity to set the Url property programmatically after instantiation of the web service object and before you call the method.
