I looked at gSoap and the solution seemed really nice. They can
generate C that I can call with ctypes.

The only problem is that I am working on a closed source software and
their licensing cost for close source were too expensive for my
company.

After much much digging, we found out the problem and managed to solve
it with SUDS. When calling a .NET service, you should not reference
the soap envelope spec with 'http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/
envelope/' but with 'http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope' .
The .NET server implementation seems to be very picky about the
last / .

Yeah for SUDS and oooooh for .NET

cheers,

Philippe
