timeout while logging into salesfroce api from a web app

I have no problems connecting to salesforce api from a console app.

however, when I execute the same call from a web project, it hangs and times out on this line:

    Svc.login(_username, _password + _token);

where Svc is

    SFDC2.SforceService : System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol

again, this same code is used no problem from a console app within the same solution

i am connecting using a web reference, based on a the generated WSDL from salesfroce.com admin screen.

there is a hidden exception

A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond

it was an issue with firewall, but still not sure why the calls worked from console but not from web project. however after opening the firewall more all calls are working.

Can you use a tool like Fiddler to try and capture the full request & response? Sharing the raw request & response would be extremely helpful.
