Posted By:      Posted Date: October 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

I have a few WCF Workflow Service (.xamlx) i have deployed these in IIS 7 and these are working properly on http binding. No i want to expos these services on net.tcp binding as well. What i have done is:

  1. http version is running on port 4040
  2. Added net.tcp in my website's enabled protocols property i.e. "http,net.tcp"
  3. Added net.tcp binding with "4041:*" as binding information.
  4. modified web.config with net.tcp binding information (for 1 service having IService as service contract) as given below 


  	<service name="UpdateContactSvc">

	  <endpoint name="

Hosting for WCF Services

I have written several WCF services and clients in C#, but not actually hosted on the Internet. What would be a good hosting service to use where I can load and use these services? Must be very inexpensive. This would be out of my own pocket to keep my skills up to date. Thanks,Jon Jacobs This message was composed entirely from recycled electrons.

Hosting workflow services with durable timers / delays

If I host a workflow service in IIS, will persisted workflows with expired timers be reliably and automatically reloaded? What about if I host it with WorkflowServiceHost in my own app? I haven't been able to find a clear answer to this question - all I found were old posts referring to the betas, where apparently you needed Workflow Management Service to do this, but this isn't in the shipping version of Workflow Foundation. I'd greatly appreciate a clear unambiguous answer.

Config Hosting multiple WCF services in one NT service


Hello there,


I've a question about hosting a service in a selfhosting scenario (not IIS or WAS).


For example, I have one WCFService with a config file (web.config). In this config file a system.serviceModel section exists, but also several appSettings.


Hosting in IIS is very simple. I created a svc file and voila, you can call the service. I do not have to place the configsettings of the WCFService into IIS.


Now I turn to host the WCFService in another host, a Windows NT service (or a win/console app).


Why do I have to place all of the WCFService configuration settings in the app.config of the NT Service? Why not just a reference to the physical path of the WCFService.


In the case of three WCFServices hosted by one NT Service, I have to place three web.config contents into the app.config of the NT Service. (Am I wrong? I hope so.)


tnx for reply!

MVC2 hosting on win2008 IIS7.5


Okay I have a MVC1 site hosted on a 2003 machine.  I modified the global.asax file to allow SEO string in the URL.  Worked well.  This was my first MVC project and I have learnt a few things since then, so when it came time to change servers I decided to update to MVC2 and do some changes to the code.  All works well on my windows7 machine with VS2010 pro.  Deployed to a VPS box that is running windows 2008 IIS 7.5, set to 4.0 integrated. 

Set my host file to the new IP so I can see the site prior to changing name server, and all I get is the iisstart.htm page.  I have another MVC2 site on that VPS and it is working so I am leaning towards a problem with this install.  I have included the global.asax below in case something in that does not play well with IIS 7.5 because it plays well on the development machine.  Now since my home page will not show up, and that does not have any seo strings attached to it but the default settings, it might be something else.

It does not matter if I access from remote or from the VPS server same result.  How do I trouble shoot this problem?

Binding a Grid via WCF Data Services


Hello everybody,

i am trying to bind a grid to a database via the internet. I did this for years and every time i do it, i am looking for new ways to do it. So this time i will give WCF Data Services a chance. But wait... after the first "solutions" i tried i figured out that nothing changed the years. I seems to be not easy at all....

The Idea of binding a grid to a database is, that the user see's data, can filter, search and sort on each column. And because we don't know the amount of rows we need a way to only load "some" of the rows and refetch at a time. This is a minimum requirement for each grid. So this is the goal. This means in case of the internet, that the query must be transferred to the server and the server should only return the data that was requested. It also means, that the grid must fetch only "some" rows and refetch the rest of the rows when the user is scrolling down.

Can WCF Data Services do that? Can the grid of .NET do that? Can the Telerik Grid do that or any other grid? 

I tried some of the examples called "binding grid to wcf data services", but none of them could do it. Maybe someone has a simple solution for it? Or do i have to write that my own?

Thanks for your help ... regards




WCF Restful Services & Net TCP binding



I have very high level knowledge of Rest. I was little confused when it came to WCF restful services. I have a service which is actaull a intranet service however it gets called from Desktop application as well as from web application. So currently we have WSHttp (for web app)& netTcp(for desktop) binding provisioned. Now if i think about makeing this service Restful will my NetTCP biding still work with this model.

Based on my understanding Rest is more toward Http Api based model so it will not help me for TCP based biding. secondly if at all i have to make this service Rstful what approach i need to follow make this service support NetTcp without code duplication.




calling and hosting WCF services from windows service


I have 2 windows services. Both hosting their own WCF service and it works fine.

Now one windows service (let call it the second) does need some information from the first windows service.
So I make the second dependend on the first.
This all works fine untill the second windows service starts (it started the first automatically because of dependency).
I make a call to a wcf method (even before ServiceBase.Run) from inside the second windows service towards the first. This will timeout.

I have tackled this problem by making the wcf call after ServiceBase.Run (in the OnStart method) so it looks like the program is not possible to make a wcf call before it is hosted itself (am I right?).

However when I reboot the computer the second service fails to start (startup type is automatically and the first service is started first).
The dependend service fails to start, after that, when I start it manually it will succeed

How do I make this communication work

Binding WPF Controls to an Entity Data Model

Installing and Uninstalling Services

Installing and Uninstalling Services.Unlike most projects you create in Visual Studio .NET, Windows Service projects cannot be run directly from the development environment by pressing F5. This is because the service in the project must be installed before the project can run.

You can quickly install your service application by using a command line utility called InstallUtil.exe.

Getting Started with Windows SharePoint Services

Of all of the capabilities of SharePoint, I thought I would start with the most basic installation - as a corporate intranet. It is likely that we will need to discuss some of the elements of SharePoint as we go along, so this also gives us the opportunity to review these elements for future reference.

Before going into too much detail, I would like to point out that you can try the core SharePoint framework (known as Windows SharePoint Services or WSS) for free. On Microsoft's Web site you can download a trial version of Virtual PC 2004 (VPC). Using VPC, you can install the Windows 2003 Evaluation Kit and the WSS add-on. This combination will give you 45 days to evaluate the setup.

Building a Searchable Phone Directory with Windows SharePoint Services

I want to continue to build out the intranet site we've started in our previous articles. A standard item in every intranet is a staff/employee list. Most companies implementing Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) are large enough to have a database that contains all employees. We will use the aggregation features of SharePoint to include data from this database into our intranet.
