Help on Web Services

I created a test database currently available online. The database is supposed to be accessed via a web service i created. The webservice is working fine in my local machine. It can access the contents of the database (via webmethods) in my local machine and the database published online. Also, our C# desktop apps can access the database both the local and the online database via that webservice consumption.

My problem is this, when i deployed the webservice at http://stinger-1.at.vwdhosting.net/cmsWebServices/cmsWebServices.asmx, it's yielding a configuration error. It has something to do with web.config authentication mode. Maybe, somebody out there could help me on this.

Note that the website http://www.vwdhosting.net is a test site for web and database provided by microsoft (limited to 1 month).

Hi there,

I also got into this recently. I solved it by deploying the web service in a directory that is not a subfolder of the main site's folder. For example if web site was in c:\website, deploy the service in c:\service, and then create it a virtual directory under web site. Also, you will have to add a Location tag in your web site's web.config to allow all users (allow="*") in service directory so that web sites authentication does not apply to the service. (hope this helps)
