In short, because the default transport for SOAP is unmodified HTTP, which means that security monitoring becomes very difficult; firewalls have to have security controls at the SOAP-request level. Basically, SunRPC is detested for the same reason, and most firewalls block it, but it's tricky to block SOAP without blocking innocent HTTP traffic. > "Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder. > Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder" I am not a faith-based person myself, but to those who are (I don't mean fanatics), the second line should read "Act from faith, and failure makes you rethink and push yourself harder."
