Solution 1

The beginning of the following article talks about the pros and cons of each.

A Beginner's Tutorial for Understanding Windows Communication Foundation (WCF)[^]

Along with these you will have to consider the interoperability with existing client applications(if any) before making a choice.

1)Web Services are for old application, but they are old technolgy;
2)WCF is the future, they are very configurable and can be hosted in IIS or into Windows services;
Can be used not only for web communications but also for inter-application communication.

I recomand you to use WCF!
