what do i need to enable accessing of webservices from a clients PC ??

what do i need to enable accessing of webservices from a clients PC

i'm hosting some webservices from my server in VB.NET.
i've got some client windows applications done in VB.NET.
what have i got to install on the clients PC to be able to access these
webservices??
Will just the .NET Framework suffice???
Or do i have to install SOAP??
note - the OS of the client can be win98, win2K, win3000, winXP

second, (with regards to SOAP)...

If i've got to install SOAP, then there's a thorn up my bottom,
which is constantly perstering me of the fact that MS have stopped
supporting SOAP??

so does this mean this is the end of SOAP??
how will or do webservices work without SOAP???

Jinhashe,

That depends with what you get the information from the webservice
- IE nothing to instal
- a dotNet program (by instance VBNet) you have to install the framework
- a Win32 program you do not have to intall the framework for this
reason.

In the last situation I advice you to ask this question in the newsgroup
microsoft.publi c.dotnet.framew ork.webservice where it can be probably be
answered more in depth than here, because it is than not directly a VBNet
question.

I hope this helps?

Situation: I have to connect with my Windows 2000 server using VS.NET 2003 and C# and connect to a remote Linux server at another company's office and query their XML file. Their file may be updated every hour or so. How can I do this easily? I would like to use secure communication even encryption if possible. I would query and insert locally only the newest records found in that XML file to an xml or MS access db.

Firstly let me be very clear about this, I do not want to create a web service proxy nor do I want to do anything with web services. Basically, I have a shrink wrapped desktop application which downloads data from a web site. Unfortunately the application has a fixed timeout and the web server regularly exceeds this, causing the application to shut the connection and subsequently not receive any data. The desktop application also uploads...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
