accessing a webservice both from asp.net and from a program RRS feed

    I have a webservice on my website.  I also have a stand alone program that people can download from my website, to interact with the webservice.  The webservice writes to a database, and my website reads from that database (and also writes to it as well).

    My website is protected with https (ssl).  So information (such as passwords) that is sent to the website is protected.  But if I want my stand-alone program (that people download) to interact with the web-service, will the traffic between it and the webservice be protected by SSL?  Is there a way to find out?

    Same than using a browser. It depends on which url you configured to access this service. You should see that in your app code or inside its app.config file.
