Default activating a SOAP extension from a client

I want to write a SOAP extension that gets activated from both the client and the server. But so far, I have only been able to activate from the server.

I have a service (.asmx file) which contains the following:

namespace OfficerCallIn

[WebService(Name="OfficerCallInService",Namespace=" TheOfficerCallInService")]
   public class OfficerCallInService : System.Web.Services.WebService {

        . . .

        public void ProcessOfficerLocationAndStatus { ... }

The SOAP extension file looks like this:

      namespace WebServiceHeaderExtension
           public class CryptoSOAPExtAttribute :
             System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapExtensionAttribu te
               public override Type ExtensionType
                 {get {return typeof(CryptoSOAPExt); }}

            public class CryptoSOAPExt :
               ... // the usual methods

and the client call looks like this:

      OfficerCallInService srvc = new OfficerCallInService();
      srvc.ProcessOfficerLocationAndStatus( . . .);

The intention is to put some encryption/decryption code, currently residing in the client, into the SOAP extension. Right now, the extension methods are essentially empty, containing nothing more than the usual boilerplate code and a few MessageBox() pop-ups to signal that they are being activated.

I can see that the service is activating the SOAP code, since the pattern of activations is: BeforeDeserialize, AfterDeserialize, BeforeSerialize, AfterSerialize. This is the standard server-side pattern. But what must I do to get the client to activate the SOAP extensions? I'm sure that I am overlooking something perfectly simple and obvious, but, as I am a beginner at this material, I don't know what it is. Can someone clue me in?
