Invoke web services over internet

Hi :confused:

we´ll try to give access for our vendors to web services that put in intranet. Do you know what is the best way to do this.
thanks a lot.

Were your web services implement using webMethods Integration Server or some other tool? If IS, then you would work with your company’s network security team to find out how they expose internal applications to the outside world. You can use a proxy server or a product from webMethods called the Reverse Invoke server or probably just a pure firewall / network content switch solution.

At any rate, you would give the external partners a URL that would map to one of the SOAP processor URL’s on Integration Server.

There are lots of transport-level, message content-level and malicious content attack-level security issues to think about when exposing web services to the general public.
