Can a WebService execute a LONG process?

    I need to expose a WebService that, when called, will execute a very
    long process. It's possible the process can take two to six hours to
    execute.

    What I need to know is, how can I have a client tell the WebService to
    start, the client 'disconnect' and the WebService continue to run
    without cancelling due to a timeout or whatever reason it might have to
    die off.

    Thanks

    It is possible to call a web service asynchronously.
    Look here for instance for an explanation:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnservice/html/service09032002.asp

    In your case, you'll also need to (seriously) increase the time out limit on
    the server.
