Pardon me if I answer my own question. Second search for the answer found a
Figured I would share the answer.
Here is the answer I go from MSDN..
The problem is with the cookies. The Web service code does not see a valid
session ID with the request, so it creates a brand new HttpSessionState
object for each call, and returns the initial value of 1. The reason for
this is that the client proxy class, which inherits from the
System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol class does not have an
instance of the System.Net.CookieContainer class associated with it.
Basically, there is no place to store cookies that are returned. To fix this
problem, I changed my code as follows with the new code highlighted:
' Works with cookied ASP.NET sessions but NOT with
' cookieless sessions.
Private Cookies As System.Net.CookieContainer
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
Dim proxy As New localhost.Service1()
Dim ret As Integer
' Set the Cookie Container on the proxy
If Cookies Is Nothing Then
Cookies = New System.Net.CookieContainer()
proxy.CookieContainer = Cookies
ret = proxy.IncrementSessionCounter()
Label1.Text = "Result: " & CStr(ret)
