first let me say i am a newbie in .net
i am working on a project where i would like to receive xml API calls from other websites to mine so my customers can add information to my site from there a lot like eBays API to upload auctions.
now the part i am having trouble with......
my site is a .net site but i would like to receive calls from any programming code (such as PHP) so you use XML which is standard over all the languages.
i know about cURL in php to send a XML request to another server but from what i have read ASP.net has no support for cURL
i know about ASP.net webrequests but that would only work if i was sending from a .net page to a .net page (at least that is my understanding)
any suggestions on the server side to grab the XML file from a universal send method (that will work with PHP), parse the file, allow me to work with the information and then send a XML request back o the requester in XML.
Thanks in Advance

I think your best bet is going to be web services.
They are static methods which take parameters from HTTP Post Requests using JSON, url-encode and SOAP to name but a few
Google yeids a few results which will help you get started.
Hope that helps,
