Hi MooseWranglers,
Just setting up a web service on Lan workgroup. Works fine using Localhost on server it was built on and wsdl is viewable .Can't find wsdl with browser from connected client machine. Client is able to see Tomcat home page on server. Just looking for some ideas as to common problems that might result in this scenario. Thanks in advance for any ideas. PL

Just want to say that I have made exceptions in the firewalls (Windows XP Pro) and at one point disabled them and disconnected from the internet. One exceptions I made was for the port that service wsdl should show up at. Wasn't sure whether to allow port to use TCP or UDP so I tried both. No luck with those exceptions or any others I tried. PL

I think you might get better answers if you asked a question that appeared to be trying to solve a problem. Just asking people to guess what might go wrong in circumstances which might be similar to yours is far too open-ended. So provide some data and ask people to solve your problem.

Paul C, I did state a problem and between the 2 posts I made,indicated enough context to maybe spark some ideas. I'm not looking for anyone to " solve my problem". Just need some fresh ideas to take another shot at this problem myself'. PL

If you see a handshake error, it could be a certificate issue.

Hi To Anyone With A Similar Problem,
Just came back to report that I at least came up with a work-around for this problem. Never did figure out why not able to see port of App Server where Web Service running, but did write Web App that runs on App Server and uses HttpURLConnection and InputStreamReader to read in WSDL and allow display with Client browser after setting response type to text/xml.
Not claiming to have resolved this problem completely, but at least found a way for Client to get what they need to generate a Client app to use the web service. PL

Hi To anyone who comes across this thread with similar web service issue,
The specific context of this problem was the Windows Workgroup environment . The situation was that Workgroup peer/client could not see wsdl on system running web service. I was trying to access from browser of peer/client and never was able to see wsdl. I finally figured out that could generate client on peer in either Visual Studio or Eclipse. These were both successful at viewing wsdl and running client against web service methods. One other factor was that I changed web service to generate wsdl on system running web service at address the system is known by on workgroup ( not localhost ). Good Luck . PL
