Hi All,

I have a c# web service that is goign to be used by different machines during a build process. How can i ensure that only one connection is made to the web service at any one time? I remember using mutex's but im sure that only ensure one instance of a process is running on a single computer rather than on a web service. any ideas?

Thanks guys!

You could put code in the web service that detects which machine is currently connected, if another one attempts to use the service while it is already in use then just send back a "not available at this time" error?

If it's WCF web service, take a look here:
It can be achieved through configuration.
