That's supposed to be a good thing? Allowing RPC to subvert firewalls by piggy-backing on top of HTTP just grates my nerves. Isn't that the Microsoft mantra: why be safe when you can be convenient.

Apparently you've never heard of WSE then...and beyond that, it's up to the receiving server of the SOAP message to decide what to do with it, there are plenty of security measures baked into SOAP (or whatever mechanism you decide to build to intercept the message).

It's not just MS...SOAP is a widely used protocol by many vendors other than MS. It's up to the programmer to implement security...the fact that it's over HTTP is absolutely irrevelant in this case.
