This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

Assembly:  System.Web.Services (in System.Web.Services.dll)

[FlagsAttribute]
public enum WebServiceProtocols

Member nameDescription
UnknownUnknown protocol.
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.
