Hi all,

I've just started to write a Web Service application and I'd like to know how can I get (old) servervariables inside my method ?

I'd just want to know the computer name of the client (the IP is ok also) to process with it.

Thx.

Thx, in fact, i'm already using the method descibed in your 2nd link but when I call my service from my application, I got this error message :

The server was unable to process the request due to an internal error.  For more information about the error, either turn on IncludeExceptionDetailInFaults (either from ServiceBehaviorAttribute or from the <serviceDebug> configuration behavior) on the server in order to send the exception information back to the client, or turn on tracing as per the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 SDK documentation and inspect the server trace logs.

Do you know how to activate th debug function easyly ?

I've added this :

     </system.web>
 
    <system.diagnostics>
      <trace autoflush="true" />
      <sources>
        <source name="System.ServiceModel"
                switchValue="Information, ActivityTracing, Error"
                propagateActivity="true">
          <listeners>
            <add name="sdt"
                type="System.Diagnostics.XmlWriterTraceListener"
                initializeData= "mystack.e2e" />
          </listeners>
        </source>
      </sources>
    </system.diagnostics>

but there is no trace file.

I've found my problem.

I'm using the following code :

HttpContext.Current.Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_HOST")

to get the remote_host value but HTTPCONTEXT is an empty object. It seems that it's not the good way to do or that I need to initiate it before.

The question is not answer. So keep it open or close but I don't agree to split answer as it is not !
