call web service from pocket pc 2003 in VS 2005

P: n/a
Does anyone has experience with calling web service from pocket pc 2003
project in VS 2005 environment?

I just migrated a smart device(pocket pc 2003) solution from VS 2003 to VS
2005. There are 3 projects inside solution: 1. pocket PC 2003 windows form
project; 2. Business rules 3. a web service which will be used to download
and upload data via wireless from/to backend database.

After converted and built successfully, the web service could be access
directly by viewing in IE. there are several oeprations inside the web
service and I tested each of them by accessing from local machine. No problem
at all.

But when I run the pocket PC project on emulator, a web exception comes out.
I did several tests and found out that I can't even call the "HelloWorld"
operation(which comes by default in every web service) from my pocket PC
project.
The error is "Could not establish connection to network."

Initially i thought something wrong with conversion from VS2003 to VS2005.
But then I created a new Smart Device -- Pocket PC 2003 project and a new web
service with only "HelloWorld" operation(everyone with VS 2005 could try)
freshly in VS 2005. The result is still the same: Web service couldn't be
called from pocket PC but can be accessed via browser.

Does that mean Smart Device -- Pocket PC 2003 project in VS 2005 has problem
to call web service?
