We have a .NET 3.5 web service that runs just fine when it calls an external web service as long as our web service is installed on Windows Server 2003. When our web service is installed on Windows Server 2008 our outbound web service call is never made. We've replicated this behavior on about 5 different 2008 servers with the exact same issue. We are wondering if it is because the URL address of the service we are calling doesn't end with a file name, it looks like this: https://......./ws/SomeService?applicationName=123
We know this line of code is being executed: Dim result As IAsyncResult = CType(request.BeginGetRequestStream(AddressOf sendCallback, request), IAsyncResult)
However Fiddler shows that NO request is ever being made to https://......./ws/SomeService?applicationName=123
If we move our application to a Windows 2003 server it works perfectly.
If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate your help.
