    Hi,

    Please try to check the following about the difference between inbound & outbound webserices:

    Inbound Web services are synchronous; that is, they do not rely on a queue and a processing service to transfer information.

    Inbound Web services do not require an adapter, nor do they require a channel to be configured. However, you must configure a Web site on the <label>Web sites</label> form and you must configure all the other elements for a document transfer that uses AIF. That is, you must configure a local endpoint, actions (from which you generate Web services), at least one endpoint and an action policy on that endpoint. Additionally, you may configure pipeline components (including value lookups) and endpoint action data policies for document transfer with inbound Web services.

    When you configure an endpoint for inbound Web services, you must set up an Microsoft Dynamics AX user (or user group) for that endpoint. Next, you must give the user group access to the Business Connector. For details, see Configuring document exchanges that expose Web services.

    Outbound Web services are asynchronous and place messages on a queue where they are exchanged using a batch processing service.

    Outbound Web services are initiated by your Microsoft Dynamics AX installation when other external sites have exposed Web services.

    For more information, please try to refer to:

    Hi

    The idea about web services is that it's not vendor specific. Thus, a Siebel Web Service (inbound) is just like any other web service. There are millions of examples on calling web services in C#.

    But, there are some helpful stuff in the official documentation . In this doc, specifically you can use aMobile Web Client to respond to WS calls. Like this there is no need for a Siebel Server install and jumping through the loops to setup an inbound web service and enabling the EAI Object Manager(s).
