Can I access a web service via software?
I'm writing a client – server application and I wish to upload the server part as a web a service so I could access it from any computer while the application is stored on some server, how can I do it?

Of course, Yes.

>how can I do it?

You can consume web-service using html, javascript (ajax) and many other programming languages (and frameworks).

well i managed to access a web service using c# and asp.net, its work fine on my computer but when i upload the server part to the web i get an error

"

Runtime Error
Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".


<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
<system.web>
<customErrors mode="Off"/>
</system.web>
</configuration>


Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.


<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
<system.web>
<customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
</system.web>
</configuration>

Your application throws an exception. To get exception trace set customError markup.

The error shows that you are not on the local machine you will be redirected to a nice error page.

Have a look at - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/h0hfz6fc.aspx
