2. to overcome this, I asked for a proxy class. I received the dll and I
added it as a reference in bin. I then have the following code:
Dim cert1Path As String = "certificate1.cer"
Dim cert2Path As String = "certificate2.cer"
Dim proxy As New SecuredWebService()
Proxy.Url = "https://url.asmx"


I get an error when I do that:
"Request for the permission of type 'System.Net.WebPermission, System,
Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=XXXXXXXXXXXXX' failed"

3. Can some one do me a big favor and tell me how I can refer to a file
under App_Data or App_Code other than using "~/App_Code/Filname". I get an
error when I move the code to the server and run it using the url versus
Visual Studio start button. It complains that "File not found" or
