WCF webservice: HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request while sending large input

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF
I am connecting to a WCF based webservice. For certain methods, the input contains a list of objects/structures. When the number of items in this list increases beyond a certain number, the service fails with HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request when I try to test the same using SOAPUI. I tried changing the web.config file with the following changes: <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="2097151" /> <binding name="basicHTTP" closeTimeout="00:01:00" openTimeout="00:01:00" receiveTimeout="00:01:00" sendTimeout="00:01:00" maxReceivedMessageSize="4194304" maxBufferSize="98547" maxBufferPoolSize="258547"> <readerQuotas maxDepth="2147483647" maxStringContentLength="2147483647" maxArrayLength="2147483647" maxBytesPerRead="2147483647" maxNameTableCharCount="2147483647" /> </binding>   Kangkan

Uploading Large files via Web Service | HTTP Error 413 - Request Entity Too Large.


Hello all -

I am trying to implement a Web Service, which accepts a binary file as a byte array for one of its parameters.  It's workings are based on this article:

Anyhow, the size of the file can be significant as the types of files being uploaded through the service are MP4 Video files.  The service works on my WinXP SP2 localhost, but when I implement it onto a 2003 Server and try to consume the service, I get the following error back from the web service:
The request failed with HTTP status 413: Request Entity Too Large.

I do a little searching around and find a few articles indicating that I need to adjust my "MaxReadAheadLength" property in IIS.  A good example of one of those articles is here:

The suggestion from the article is to execute the following command on the web server:
cscript adsutil.vbs set w3svc/1/uploadreadaheadsize 204800 

FYI, the adsutil.vbs is in your IIS's AdminScripts directory.  I'm guessing that the /1/ part of the command is th

HTTP Post and WebService


I am working on a application which will accept the data in the post request. My application also wants to expose a web service and want to call another web service. Considering all these 3 action that I want to do, can I create a single application which will have a web form which will accept the POST request and expose a web service at the same time.

Although it may be possible to achieve this, Is this a correct way of doing it?

HTTP Pipelines: Securely Implement Request Processing, Filtering, and Content Redirection with HTTP


ASP.NET is a flexible and extensible framework for server-side HTTP programming. While most people think of ASP.NET in terms of pages served, there is a lower-level infrastructure sitting beneath this page model. The underlying plumbing is based on a pipeline of app, module, and handler objects. Understanding how this pipeline works is key if you want to get the most out of ASP.NET as an HTTP server platform, while making your process more efficient, and keeping your server secure. This article introduces the architecture of the pipeline and shows how you can use it to add sophisticated functionality to an ASP.NET-based app.

Anonymous Web Site receives "The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized"


I set up a test website on my local box and was able to access sharepoint search using the querySearch web service from SP.  After I got it all working properly I transferred the code to the target website that is set up with anonymous access for all people on the fab floor.  However from this website I keep getting the 401 error.  It can't be SP because the same code worked from my local website "localhost".  Any suggestions?  we don't want to have to have the fab people log in so we can't not have the box anonymous.  I would appreciate any suggestions very much!!!

HTTP 400 Bad Request Error when uploading to document library


I am running MOSS 3007 Standard on Windows 2003. When trying to upload files larger than about 29Mb, I am getting an HTTP 400 Bad request error. The error states "HTTP Error 400 - Request is badly formed." I am able to successfully upload a 28Mb file. Sharepoint is configured to accept files up to 75Mb.

I have done a fair amount of research on this, but none of the solutions seem to apply to our environment. The two most likely candidates do not apply, for example we are NOT running URLScan (there are a variety of solutions suggesting this could be an issue with uploads of 30Mb or more), and we are on 2003 with IIS6, so again the issue relating to 2008 and IIS7 do not apply.

The "Request is badly formed" part of the request is particularly confusing as most issues I have come across where this error is the symptom point to errors in custom code that is trying to talk to SharePoint. We have done none of our own custom coding and this error is occurring when attempting a simple upload to a document library.

Trying to drag and drop the file across when the document library is open in windows explorer also fails.

I did come across someone saying they had a similar problem which was caused by a damaged content database, however in this case, it is occuring regardless of which content database I use, so either they are all corrupt

WCF issues sending large data - "An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host"

Hi Guys I have posted the following on www.asp.net but thought it might be productive posting here too.I have been pulling my hair out trying to fix an issue with sending data over WCF, I have read pretty much every THREAD on this forum regarding or similar to this issue without any successful solution.  I have a simple data object which has a [DataMember] with a data type of byte[]. I use this to send binary data from my web app as follows: Asp.net MVC website --> WCF Client (Has my Service References) --> My Services (MyServices.svc) --> Business/Data Tier Everything is being executed from within VS 2008 Pro.   Now I have successfully sent data up to 2.2MB, however it fails if i try and send a file such as 2.3MB or larger i get the following exceptions: General Exception Exception rethrown at [0]:    at System.Runtime.Remoting.Proxies.RealProxy.HandleReturnMessage(IMessage reqMsg, IMessage retMsg)   at System.Runtime.Remoting.Proxies.RealProxy.PrivateInvoke(MessageData& msgData, Int32 type)   at SoftApp.WCFClient.MyServiceReference.IMyService.Document_Save(DtoDocument dtoDocument, Int32 usercode)   at SoftApp.WCFClient.MyServiceReference.MyServiceClient.Document_Save(DtoDocument dtoDocument, Int32 usercode) in c:\dev\softapp\softapp.wcfclient\service references\myservicereference\refe

How to bind a WCF Http client to a specific outbound IPAddress before making the request

I want my request to go out through a specific IP Addresses. Is there a way to do that in WCF. The explanation of why I need this is a little long winded so i'd rather not get into that. Here is sample code string ipAddress = ""; IService service; ChannelFactory<IOmlService> factory = new ChannelFactory<IService>(new BasicHttpBinding(), new EndpointAddress("http://" + IPAddress + ":6996/IService")); service = factory.CreateChannel(); service.Test(); Here is an example scenario to explain exactly what i'm looking for. Let's say I have two IPs on my machine ( and Both of them can hit If i run this code now, it will hit the IP (.32) from any of my IPs (.30 or .31). How can i force it to go through a specific IP of mine (say .30). Is there any way to do that using WCF? Thanks

The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme 'Anonymous'

I am trying to do a soap request from a WebCTRL server. I went to add a service reference, entered the URL to my wsdl and (after prompting me for a username and password) it added the reference and I can create an instance of the service object and makes calls against it.   Dim eval As New WebCTRL_Eval.EvalClient eval.Open() Debug.Print(eval.getValue("#reception_40/lstat"))   I get this back from the server, on open and getvalue.   The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme 'Anonymous'. The authentication header received from the server was 'Basic realm="SOAP Access"'.   I understand that it is the HTTP authentication that I need to setup or configure, but just dont understand how to do it.   I have tried eval.ClientCredentials.UserName.UserName = "myusername" eval.ClientCredentials.UserName.Password = "mypassword"   How do I change the client authentication scheme and provide my credentials to it?   Here is what is on my app.config file.   <system.serviceModel>  <bindings>   <wsHttpBinding>    <binding name="EvalSoapBinding"     bypassProxyOnLocal="false"     transactionFlow="false"     hostNameComparisonMode="StrongWildcard"     maxBufferPoolSize="524288"     maxReceivedMessageSize="65536"     messageEncoding="Text"
