The security guys here also banned access to the soap chat server I set up on the Internet to be able to chat with my old pals... correct, they don't allow Messenger or any other chat-programs. I know I'm not allowed to do chat-stuff over the Internet according to the IT-rules here, but gaaaaahhh!!! I must be able to chat a little with my friends, my mailbox is flooding as it is already!
I'm thinking of moving my chat Web Service (which is already protected by userid and password in a SOAP header) to another location and encrypting the messages. How hard can it be in .NET?
