Hi Alexander,

In most cases, the calling device never needs IIS or a web server of any
kind. On the receiving side, some kind of HTTP handler is required since
today SOAP is bound in most cases to HTTP. Microsoft provides you two
hosts for web services, one in IIS, and the other in a custom HTTP/TCP
listener that is a part of the WSE 2.0 tools. Again, you don't need these
on the callers side.

In the simplest case, the client needs to be able to make an HTTP request.
This means it needs network connectivity, and the ability to open a TCP/IP
connection to a remote port, and create an HTTP request packet and then
wait on the response on the same connection. Once you can do that, you
need to be able to mix HTTP and XML in the same request message, and be
able to locate the SOAP XML response (or fault).

If you don't have the Compact Framework, you may have to write your own
tools or use a XML DOM (most DOM's can post an HTTP message). Your HTTP
request needs to be SOAP compliant, so if you are rolling your own tools,
you should become very familiar with the SOAP specification. If you are
using a mobile device for which there are good SOAP or XML tools, you'll
save a ton of time over rolling your own (and spare your potential service
partners a world of headache debugging your packets) if you adopt a
commercial toolset that is tested and supported.

I hope this helps

Hello!
Thank You for link, but this solution work with Win XP SP2 or WS2k3 - it is
a limitation for me.

Thank You again.
