Hi,
How is a web service used between two intranets which are protected using firewall.
Is HTTP tunneling one solution here or something else needs to be done.


Thanks,
Rampreet

The overwhelming majority of web services are designed to run over HTTP, so I wouldn't say that's "tunnelling"; certainly not in the same sense that (e.g.) RMI can be tunnelled over HTTP.

Obviously, port 80 (or some other port) on the server needs to be open to the outside world. If the WS end point is on a server that also functions as a web server, then nothing needs to be done.
