I am using VS2008, windows mobile 6 classic emulator on WinXP.

I created a new web service (virtual folder, same machine)  and a new mobile app.
I can get to the web service from a browser  I see the service and all looks ok.
Coming from the mobile emulator, I get the following:
If I am trying to connect via localhost 
{"No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it"}

If I try to connect via the machine name  
http://MyMachine/myVirtFold/xxx.asmx
I get
could not establish connection to network.

Ive tried killing the firewall, changing permissions.
I dont know what else to try -  or how to tell what the problem really is.
Thanks!

- Cool - that worked.  But - I need to get it working with my machine name if possible. Do you have an idea of what is different there?

That is getting the IP address of my emulator, I'm not sure how that can help?

this bug - does that mean there's no way to get it working using a machine name?  (just wondering)...
