When I am calling proxy web service call method I am getting error unable to connect to remote server.
Also i tried both way through wevservice reference and also through creating proxy using wsdl.
In both approaches I am receiving same error, I don't have any clue and stuck up in this issue from last few days.
Please suggest what would the solution of this

This is either a network issue local to you (firewall etc), or maybe the service isn't running, maybe you aren't authenticated? Maybe the service is running on a non-standard port? You can't really remotely-diagnose local connection issues.

You need to troubleshoot the connection and IIS settings.
Drop an index.htm page in the service root. Remote into the service box and try to browse the service in IIS or enter the URL in a browser. If you cannot open index.htm then you have a problem with IIS configuration. Next try to open the svc file in a
browser. Troubleshoot as necessary.
Once you get IIS verified and working while logged into the remote box, then to do the same process from your system.

For this scenario, you could check the web service path in Local browser and the permissions to access to the webservice path. Also you need to check the proxy / firewall settings.
