I have a silverlight application with SSL enabled. Also need to access the SSL enabled webservice from the silverlight application. But getting error like

'This could be due to attempting to access a service in a cross-domain way without a proper cross-domain policy in place, or a policy that is unsuitable for SOAP services. You may need to contact the owner of the service to publish a cross-domain policy file and to ensure it allows SOAP-related HTTP headers to be sent. This error may also be caused by using internal types in the web service proxy without using the InternalsVisibleToAttribute attribute. Please see the inner exception for more details '

Also added a 'clientaccesspolicy.xml' file in the root folder of the webservice and domain root folder.

Please advice a solution.
