    Hi everyone,

    Silly question, but does a standard MVC.net web application create a WSDL file, even when it's not running a web service?

    I have been asked to hide the WSDL file during a pen test...

    How do you access the WSDL file?

    Cheers,

    No.  A SOAP service (WCF, ASMX) exposes a WSDL.

    How do you access the WSDL file?

    The pen test should provide the WSDL URL.  Once you know the URL then you can find the service and go from there.
