WCF Web Services and the EPDM API

I've created a WCF web service that uses the EPDM API to extract files from the vault.  It works fine on my local machine where I'm logged into the vault, but as soon as I put it on a web server running IIS, the LoginEx() function times out.  Interestingly, it doesn't "fail."  No error is returned - at least not within a minute.  It just never finishes.


I've read a few posts on this forum which seem to suggest that, in order to do this, I need to have a user on logged into the vault on the web server.  I've tried that without much luck.  Has anyone else run into this particular issue?  I've seen one other post where the developer had a similar issue - but that seemed to be with the SolidWorks API - not the EPDM one.  I've reached out to that person, but it's an old post and I have not received a response.


Any insights that anyone can provide are appreciated.  I'm stuck at the moment and I'm not sure how to resolve this.
