please use the wsdl2 tool.

Specifies that the url for the services should be read from the <appsettings> section
of the configuration file, using the provided key.
.I "-appsettingbaseurl:url", "-baseurl:url"
Specifies a base URL for the service. The final URL will be constructed by
combining this value with the URL read from the
.I -appsettingurlkey
option, and the

Generate a proxy for a compiled web service class. The URL parameter
can be used to providethe location of the service.
