Silverlight enabled web service security error

I tried to create a SL enabled Web Service by following the example from the Microsoft link: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc197940(VS.95).aspx When I got to step 6 to test the web service that I created (View in Browser), I got the following error:  Security settings for this service require 'Anonymous' Authentication but it is not enabled for the IIS application that hosts this service. My IIS is located on my local machine with Windows Integrated Authentication and Anonymous access unchecked. After checking the Anonoymous access checkbo, I still got the above error. I have read other post on the Internet that Silverlight uses BasicHttpbinding but the settings in the web.config file was created by Visual Studio 2010 (running .NET 4.0), so I didn't think I need to mess with it. The following is the section from the web.config: <system.serviceModel>   <behaviors>    <serviceBehaviors>     <behavior name="">      <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" />      <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false" />     </behavior>    </serviceBehaviors>   </behaviors>   <bindings>    <customBinding>     <binding name=

Silverlight and WCF 'simple question' (right), involving https vs transport security


Two questions:  I’m familiar with WCF and using it with Silverlight, https:, and I have a remote web server that I have a SSL / TLS certificate on.


I want to encrypt login and/or data to and from the web server.  Already I can do this on localhost, using this video:  http://www.silverlight.net/learn/videos/silverlight-videos/using-aspnet-secure-services-and-applications-services/

    (“In this video, Tim Heuer demonstrates two important features of Silverlight and ASP.NET, using secure web services and using ASP.NET application services from within Silverlight. This demonstration walks through securing services and interacting with the ASP.NET authentication services to restrict use as well as directly interact with ASP.NET application services from within a Silverlight application.”)

 Also I have reviewed this video on localhost:
