WCF client as a windows service or scheduled task

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF
 

Hi,

I am consuming a web service in a WCF Client app and subsequently update my DB with the latest updates. The WCF is configured using basicHttpBinding, securityMode of TransportCredentialOnly, and clientCredentialType of Windows.  My timeouts (Close, Open, Receive, Send) are all set to 10 minutes.  I am using a Sql Server Agent Proxy with the correct Domain account (actually the same account that is logged into the server itself) given the SSIS Package Execution subsystem and said Proxy is being used for the 'Run as' in the package Step.  The account is a local Administrator AND a sysadmin.

I want to host this WCF app as a Windows service or a scheduled task. I want to know if I can do this and if so, how to accomplish? This service handles minimum of 100 records to max of 100,000 records. The task needs to be automated and scheduled. Appreciate any inputs.

Thank you

TCP Error Code 10060 when attempting to access WCF Service hosted by WIndows Service from client run

  

Hello all,

We have a Framework 3.5 WCF Service which is in turn hosted in a Windows Service using Net.Tcp Binding. SvcUtil is used to generate the proxy which is used instead of a service reference in the client code. We are also using Tcp Port Sharing. The endpoint address is net.tcp://HostMachineName/MyServicePath. The service logs to the Event log and everything works perfectly on the same machine.

When attempting to run the client from a different machine we are getting TCP Error Code 10060 errors. Below is the error message:

System.ServiceModel.EndpointNotFoundException: Could not connect to net.tcp://HostMachineName/MyServicePath. The connection attempt lasted for a time span of 00:00:20.8592415. TCP error code 10060: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond 111.22.333.444:808.  ---> System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond 111.22.333.444:808... The IP Address displayed was the correct IP Address for the HostComputerName.

Has anyone encountered this problem? Also, client specs say no config files, so anything that wo

Not able to create scheduled task in windows server 2003 using a batch file

  

Hi,

I am working on a .net 1.1 windows forms application. We have windows 2003 service pack 2 as the server operating system which uses IIS 6.0.

We have a report generation section. User submits report from the screen(c# code) to run report on a specified time. This request will create a batch file with the AT command with the time specified by the user. This batch file will create an AT job in scheduled tasks window and this AT job will a call another scheduler. This scheduler will generate the report.

the AT command looks like T 16:32 /INTERACTIVE C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\mywebservices\bin\Schedulers.GenerateReport.exe

 

This is working fine in all servers except one server which uses windows 2003 standard edition. The problem is like it is not able to create the batch file and subsequently fails to create the AT job.

Is there any permission related issue by which it is not able to create the batch file from code.

Please advice me!!!


wcf service host by windows service - client cannot connect

  

hi

i have created a cf service hosted by windows service. the wcf service app.config is

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!--Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation.  All Rights Reserved.-->
<configuration>

  <system.serviceModel>
    <services>
      <service name="DiscoveyService.WCFDiscoveryService">

Connection times out when WCF client tries to call WCF service, both in Windows Forms apps

  

Hello!

The exception message is: Could not connect to http://24.16.222.88:43584/CProsp/CP_WCF/mex. TCP error code 10060: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond 24.16.222.88:43584.

What I am trying to do: a WCF service is self hosted in a Windows Forms application. The WCF client is in another Windows Forms application. Eventually, the client is supposed to run on a computer somewhere out there on the Internet and send messages to the server which is running on my home computer. This is my first attempt at making a remote WCF call.

I have success when server and client either run on the same computer, or are running on different computers attached to my little in-home LAN. When I try to route the client's request via Internet (in preparation for having the client reside out there somewhere) I get the exception reproduced in the first paragraph above after waiting for about 20 seconds.

OS is WinXP Pro with SP3. Using Visual Studio 2008, Visual Basic. 24.16.222.88 is the IP currently assigned to me by Comcast (I watch carefully to see when it changes; also, I altered it for purposes of asking this question).

Windows Service Applications Tutorials

  
You can easily create services by creating an application that is installed as a service. For example, suppose you want to monitor performance counter data and react to threshold values. You could write a Windows Service application that listens to the performance counter data, deploy the application, and begin collecting and analyzing data.

Problem to obtain client IP on web service

  

Friends,

I'm having problems to obtain the client IP on web service. Here's my scenario:

One server with Windows 2003, hosting the web service using .Net Framework 2.0, with IP 10.0.2.50 and host name ServerTransaction.
Other server with Windows 2003, hosting a web application using .Net Framework 2.0, that consuming the web service on  ServerTransaction, with IP 10.0.2.51 and host name ServerApplication.
Many other computers on the local network (IPs: 10.0.2.80, 10.0.2.81, 10.0.2.82, ...) acessing the web application on ServerApplication.

On the code of the web service I've tried to use HttpContext.Current.Request.UserHostAddress or HttpContext.Current.Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR") or HttpContext.Current.Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FORR"), but always I can only get the IP of ServerApplication (10.0.2.51).

Any idea or tip?


Thanks and sorry for my bad english.

ASP.NET: Combine Web and Windows Services to Run Your ASP.NET Code at Scheduled Intervals

  

If you want to schedule ASP.NET tasks, one solution is to use a Web service to provide an interface to your ASP.NET application and build a Windows service that calls to it at scheduled intervals. Thus the ASP.NET application doesn't have to own the scheduling logic. Here the author shows how to schedule your ASP.NET tasks using a Windows service to initiate the Web service call because Windows services can start themselves when Windows boots up.

Web-Aware Apps: Build Hyperlinks into Your Client App with the Windows Forms LinkLabel Control

  

LinkLabels are Windows Forms controls that enable a user to hyperlink to a URL that points to either the Web or the local directory system. While the SDK documentation discusses the control, it does not demonstrate how linking is accomplished, nor does it outline the power and flexibility the control provides. This article fills those gaps, showing how to link using the LinkLabel control. It also shows the flexibility of this control for the programmer using the .NET Framework. In addition, the author covers the large number of properties that allow you to customize your controls and accurately place them. Their built-in behaviors are also discussed, along with their use in both Visual Basic .NET and C#.

Windows Services: New Base Classes in .NET Make Writing a Windows Service Easy

  

Windows services are applications that run outside of any particular user context in Windows NT, Windows 2000, or Windows XP. The creation of services used to require expert coding skills and generally required C or C++. Visual Studio .NET now makes it easy for you to create a Windows service, whether you're writing code in C++, C#, or Visual Basic. You can also write a Windows service in any other language that targets the common language runtime. This article walks you through the creation of a useful Windows service, then demonstrates how to install, test, and debug the service.
