Im trying to connect with a webservice.

 added it as a webreference, and when I firced used it, I got: "The underlying connection was closed: Unable to connect to the remote server." I then added this to web.config:
      <proxy usesystemdefault="false" proxyaddress="" bypassonlocal="true" />

After that the error changed to: The request failed with HTTP status 503: Service Unavailable

What have I done wrong?

Im using 1.1 with IIS 6 on windows server 2003.
