public enum WebServiceProtocols
Member nameDescription

HttpSoapThe HTTP SOAP protocol.
HttpGetThe HTTP GET protocol.
HttpPostThe HTTP POST protocol.
DocumentationThe Web Services Documentation protocol.
HttpPostLocalhostThe HTTP POST LOCALHOST protocol.
Caution noteCaution:

See the Remarks section. This value only checks the request's host header to mitigate only browser-redirect attacks. Authentication and authorization are still required to restrict access to a Web service.

HttpSoap12The HTTP SOAP version 1.2 protocol.
AnyHttpSoapAny version of the HTTP SOAP protocol.
Caution noteCaution:

Using the HttpPostLocalhost value of this enumeration does not prevent access to the test or web service from remote computers. This value checks only the host header of the request; no other validation, authentication, or authorization checks are performed. This check mitigates only browser-based redirection attacks. Authentication and authorization are still required to restrict access to a Web service.
