"unable download following files service.asmx? wsdl"


I have developed and published a web service a remote server. This was done without any errors. I went to the solution explorer right click web service and publish.

I can view the service from the internet. i.e. http://MyServer:800/coderedpda/service.asmx
All of the web method are there.

I go to my window application and add the web reference. Which adds the reference ok.

When I go to update the web reference I get a message saying "unable download following files service.asmx? wsdl"

Because of this I cannot use the webservice in my windows application.

Can anyone tell me how to solve this.

Many thanks in advance,
