Jacques Bourgeois (James Burger)PresidentCommented:
Is it possible that your localhost machine is 64-bit, that you have set the project's options to compile for 64-bit, and that the server is 32-bit? This could trigger an overflow in some situations.

Try compiling the application as x86, it might correct the problem.

Hi,
Initially it was set for any CPU, then i change it to x86, but make no different, that error message still come up.
Could it be the server is 64 bit and causing the problem ?

TheLearnedOne give me a hint to review my web method, because the method is for checking login from user, username and password all encrypted with a lot of special characters and send back to web service via url string, may be some of them were not allowed. I change it back for testing just simple handshake, and it work, can you tell me what character is not allow for my encryption ?

Bob LearnedCommented:
What type of encryption are you using?  Are you converting to Base-64 string after encryption?

LoGa1234567890Author Commented:
There are special characters after encryption because I generate my own encryption dictionary, which include special characters as well.
I should avoid special character and go back to base64 or 62.

Thank you for helping me to solve my problem.
