Thanks but how to do the authentication ? If I publish the service to web, all unauthenticated users will able to use this service.

Can I make use of existing domain credential to authenticate the users ?

Thanks

One last question, is it possible to log the the userID through the web service ?

1. You can write to database table...

2. You can write to a flat file...
