in reply to SOAP::Lite server with c sharp client

Okay, well, there is only one way to chase this sort of thing down:   put on your sleuthing hat.   We can presume that the software on both sides knows very well how to do SOAP, so it’s gonna turn out to be something stupid.   ;-)   Let’s go find it . . .

  1. First, dump exactly what you think your app is sending, and make extremely sure that it is sending it.   Is it a legitimate SOAP payload?   (Yeah?   Well then, prove it.   Don’t assume anything.   Prove everything.)
  2. Now to the Microsoft side.   Is there really a connection?   Does the C# app produce any sort of counter or input to indicate that it is actually receiving anything?   Does it, or any library package that it is using, make any entries in the Application Event-Log?   Check that viewer ... Microsoft apps often carry on quite a chat-storm in the event log viewer.
  3. Dummy-up a little client in Perl and see if your server actually responds as expected to that.
  4. Still stumped?   Try a tool like Wireshark.   See the connection being made, the information being sent, the response coming back.   Note that Wireshark cannot decrypt an SSL connection, but it can do traffic analysis.   You should see that “ping” followed promptly by that “pong,” and both ping-pong balls should be of a believable size.   (A very-short return-ball is probably an error message.   If the TCP/IP stack refuses to successfully send or receive the messages, you should clearly see that, too.)

Resist the temptation to whack yourself on the forehead, when you find the problem.   If you do say "doh!!" (and it is fairly likely that you will, in situations like this), then please do so quietly.   ;-)

    If only you would live by the creeds you seek to recommend to others.

    The only things you have ever proved here at PM is that you know almost nothing about Perl or program development; and you are incapable of constructing a single, short, working perl program. Both are proved by the empirical evidence of your posting history.

    The only other proof associated with you is that 99% of what you write here serves no useful purpose.

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
