ASP.NET (C#) Question

How to host a webApp with a Web Service

I have an ASP.NET web application that does some calculations using a Web Service. I have two questions about hosting it locally on my machine through IIS.
First, Do I need to host the two projects, the Web App and the Web service ? I have tried to host the web app but when I tried to run it was not able to connect to the web service.
Second, how would I make this web App accessible to the people within the company network only?

Thank you!
