DOes SOAP supports TCP transport protocol?

P: n/a
From the documentation of SOAP it seems SOAP supports both
HTTP and TCP protocol.I did not find much documentation
how to use TCP as transport layer in SOAP?
Does the SOAP toolkit 2.0 supports using TCP as transport
layer?
My reqmt is to make SOAP request without the help of HTTP.
I have already built up COM objects which are served over
DCOM to many clients.Can I serve the same objects over
SOAP.

If you want to use ASP.NET, then no, it is not possible.
ASP.NET is bound to HTTP.

But, you can build webservices that are exposed via TCP in .NET. You can do
it with .NET Remoting - using the SOAP formatter and the TCP channel. The
client will of course need to support SOAP over TCP. Not all do. (.NET
does) Also you get SOAP section-5 encoding, versus XML Schema. This may
or may not be a problem.

Why is HTTP not welcome?
