There is a client who is sending a SOAP message to my web service, but he is getting the following error message. What could be wrong and how can I correct it?

<soap:Text xml:lang="en" xmlns:soap="">System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: Server was unable to process request. ---> System.Security.Cryptography.CryptographicException: WSE600: Unable to unwrap a symmetric key using the private key of an X.509 certificate.

Can you post a copy of the SOAP message received?
How is the client application sending the SOAP message?
What kind of SOAP engine do you have on the server?
What is generating the error message above?

In addition to James's question:

It seems you wrote your server with WSE3. Do you have WSE3 clients which are working properly with this server? If not I suggest you would start with building such a client as it's easier to debug this way.

Also check that your client & server use the correct X.509 and that your server has permissions to the X.509 private key.
