Can't Add Service Reference in VS 2010 to a net.tcp endpoint

  
I've got a service running (well, it doesn't crash), but when I try to add a Service Reference to it, I keep getting Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: 'net.tcp://localhost:55555/mex'. Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: 'net.tcp://localhost:55555/mex'. If the service is defined in the current solution, try building the solution and adding the service reference again. The pertinent parts of my config file are:   <netTcpBinding> <binding name="ReliableDuplexBinding" closeTimeout="00:00:10" openTimeout="00:00:10" receiveTimeout="00:00:30" sendTimeout="00:00:15" maxBufferPoolSize="1048576" maxBufferSize="262144" maxReceivedMessageSize="262144"> <readerQuotas maxDepth="33" maxStringContentLength="100000" maxArrayLength="131072" maxBytesPerRead="262144" maxNameTableCharCount="54000" /> <reliableSession inactivityTimeout="05:00:00" enabled="true" /> <security mode="None"> <transport> <extendedProtectionPolicy policyEnforcement="Never" /> </transport> </security> </binding> </netTcpBinding> <behaviors> <serviceBehaviors> <behavior nam

no end point listening error while trying to get the service reference

  

Hey,

I am hosting a WCF service in WPF and trying to get the service reference in Console Application. I have tried to host the WCF (using the same code provided below) in a console application and it worked perfectly however when I try to host the service in WPF I am getting the following error:

Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: 'net.pipe://localhost/'.

There was no endpoint listening at net.pipe://localhost/ that could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnerException, if present, for more details.

The pipe endpoint 'net.pipe://localhost/' could not be found on your local machine. 

If the service is defined in the current solution, try building the solution and adding the service reference again.

 

The way I host is:

    Dim _baseAddress As Uri

    Dim _netNamedBinding As NetNamedPipeBinding

     _netNamedBinding = New NetNamedPipeBinding()

     _netNamedBinding.CloseTimeout = New TimeSpan(1, 1, 1, 1, 1)

        Using host As New ServiceHost(GetType(PubSubService), _baseAddress)

            Try

Custom tool error: Failed to generate code for the service reference 'CompanyService'. Please che

  

A little background because I feel I have an out of the ordinary architecture in place and don't know if this is contributing to the problem. 

We have an existing ASP.net application that is undergoing expansion.  The new functionality is all written in Silverlight 4.  As part of that expansion I gutted all the old Linq to SQL and put Entity Framework 4 into place.  To do this I created a standard .net Class Library and added my edmx files there.  Naturally, the business entities created by this cannot be used in Silverlight.  So I created a Silverlight Class Library and added all the business entities to that Silverlight Class Library as linked files.  I changed the name space to be the same.

So I have the following assembly / namespaces

Company.Project.Dal.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (.net 4 class library)

Company.Project.Entities.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (SL4 class library)

With this architecture I was able to share my business entities with my SL enabled web services, my asp.net projects, my silverlight projects.  Really it's a beautiful thing.

Once this was done I added "message" classes to Company.Project.Dal and again shared them with the other entites using linked files.  These messages are things like MyObjectRequest; they are class

Cannot get service reference for Net.tcp service hosted in IIS7

  
HiI've got a service that I want to host in IIS7. The service runs over net.tcp (currently without security), but I am unable to create a service reference to it, or call it, using the net.tcp protocol. My event log is populated with lots of errors related to ASP.NET and System.ServiceModel, 3.0.0.0The relevant services are installed and running (net.tcp port sharing service and net.tcp listener adapter).O/S : Window7 RTMDevStudio: 2008I publish the webservice to IIS7 and I get a valid page when navigating to the published .svc file (which tells me to use svtutil.exe and point it at the net.tcp endpoint).For that, I get this error :    The message could not be dispatched because the service at the endpoint address 'net.tcp://gedm-desktop.profiledc01.appdevelop.local/ManageAVMEP/ManageAVMAgent.svc/mex' is unavailable for the protocol of the address.Googling the problem leads me down several blind alleys :(I cannot determine what is causing the net.tcp listener to keep stopping? Everything is fine if I use the wsHttpBinding.Any tips or pointers to a course of action would be appreciated.ThanksGed My event log is full of errors (here is a sample) :-------An error occurred while trying to listen for the URL '/LM/W3SVC/1/ROOT/ManageAVMEP'.

The service cannot be started. This service has no endpoint defined....But it has!?!

  
Hi Foks,I'm following this tutorial on how to create RESTful services in WCF:http://www.codemeit.com/wcf/wcf-restful-pox-json-and-soap-coexist.htmlI would like to test the created service using the WCF Default Test Client, but when I run the application (F5) the service does not start and I get this message:"The service cannot be started. This service has no endpoint defined. Please add at least one endpoint for the service in config file and try again."However I do have endpoints defined for this service..I also have two other services running in the same application, which work fine:This is the relevant portion of my app.config:<behaviors>              <serviceBehaviors>                        <behavior name="WCF_Lib_Default.Service1Behavior">                   <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="True"/>                   <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="False" />             &nbs

How to set and map a Method in the Service file with endpoint elements and binding elements

  
Hi all, I have created a service file like OSService.svc in that i have two methods like one is FileUpload and FileDownload for e.g :- [WebInvoke(UriTemplate = "/fileupload/{fileName}" , Method = "POST" )]         [OperationContract]         void FileUpload(string fileName, Stream fileContents); same as Filedownload also. People you may know these methods are inside the interface of service file what you are using i'e i have created a interface as IOSService.cs. So, what i need now is i want to write separate endpoint for FileUpload and Filedownload.Because i want to set separate value for receiveTimeout  and openTimeout for the Fileupload and FileDownload process in binding section in the web.config file itself. The below code was i'm using right now but still i'm not able to the set separate value of endpoint elements in the bindings. EndPoint Section:- <endpoint name = "endPoint1"  address  = "localhost:8000/OSService.svc/" bindingConfiguration = "TransactionalTCP"   binding  = "netTcpBinding"          contract = "IOSService"/> Binding Section:-  <binding name = "TransactionalTCP"  transactionFlow = "true"   /&

Calling one endpoint from another endpoint in the same service

  
Hi, I have a WCF service host Im hosting in IIS that defines a few services and one of those services has a number of endpoints. The endpoints that belong to the same service are there to let me specify different contracts and they all use the same binding and behaviour. For the most part it works fine until a specific situation occurs: The service gets stuck when one of the endpoints tries to make a call to another endpoint in the same service. Consider the following example: <service behaviorConfiguration="GeneralServiceBehavior" name="Base"> <endpoint address="/Addresses" binding="wsHttpBinding" bindingConfiguration="wsHttpBindingConfig" contract="CommonObjects.IAddresss" /> <endpoint address="/Attachments" binding="wsHttpBinding" bindingConfiguration="wsHttpBindingConfig" contract="CommonObjects.IAttachments" /> </service> In the example above if a call is made from IAttachments implementor back to this service to access the IAddress endpoint I get stuck in what seems to be a deadlock until I get a timeout on the calling thread and then I see the call come through to the IAddress endpoint, but at that point its already too late as the channel is closed. I have looked at the InstanceContext and ConcurrencyMode. This particular servic

Incorrect hostname in EndPoint location in WSDL for a service with multiple bindings and with multip

  
We have a WCF web service that is exposed through multiple bindings.  The site is  accessed through multiple IP Addresses/Hostnames (internet/intranet).  Some of the bindings use http transport while others use https transport. The web application is configured to use .NET 4.0 with multipleSiteBindingsEnabled="true" so that we shouldn't have problems with multiple ip addresses/hostnames. What we see is that when the WSDL is accessed using a http based URL (external), the hostnames in the endpoint addresses for http transport based bindings in WSDL are correct (ie, they use the hostname header from the request) while the hostnames in the endpoint addresses for https transport based bindings in the WSDL are incorrect (ie, they do not use the hostname header in the request - they seem to use the hostname from the first available binding in IIS for that scheme and end up with the local machine names/ip addresses in the URL).   We could work around by setting the external hostname/ip in the first binding in IIS for the respective scheme, but then WSDLs accessed from intranet clients would have wrong URLS now. This happens the other way around as well, ie, when the WSDL is accessed using https, the https based addresses are fine, but http addresses in the WSDL are not correct. It looks like hostname header is used only for WSDL endpoint addre

EndpointNotFoundException - No endpoint listening

  
Hi all: I created and hosted a test WCF service on my development server.  I beleive IIS is configured properly because I can get to the IIS page from any browser off the network.  When I build my simple client application, I can successfully add the service reference, however when I execute the function, I get the following error: There was no endpoint listening at http://[domain name]/TestService2/Service1.svc that could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnerException, if present, for more details. Unfortuantely, I am not using a normal domain name, but an IP address only:  http://##.##.##.##/TestService2/Service1.svc below is a portion of my webconfig:  <system.serviceModel>   <services>    <service name="WcfService1.Service1" behaviorConfiguration="WcfService1.Service1Behavior">     <endpoint address="" binding="wsHttpBinding" contract="WcfService1.IService1">      <identity>       <dns value="" />      </identity>     </endpoint>     <endpoint address="mex" binding="mexHttpBinding" contract="IMetadataExch

WCF : How to prevent an endpoint from being published in the service WSDL?

  
Suppose I have a WCF service which has 2 endpoints A and B. I want to enable mex/wsdl on this service but my requirement is that B should not be published in the WSDL. So to say B is only for internal purpose and clients should never be aware of it. Is there a way (most probably somehow using IWsdlExporterExtension), to remove this endpoint B from being published in the metadata?

Deploy XBAP application with WCF Service Reference into multiple environments

  
Hi, we have a multiple environment setup (local, Development servers, QA servers, prod servers, etc.) and we are building an XBAP application that uses WCF Services to connect to databases.  We code and unit test everything locally and then deploy to our Development servers for more thorough unit testing.  The issue that we are having is that we don't see how to update the deployed XBAP application to use the Development server deployed WCF Service.  The only way we've been able to do this is by having to change the reference on my local machine, complie, and redeploy the XBAP.Question:  How do we configure a deployed XBAP's Service Reference to point to the same service on a different server than what it was originally compiled/deployed with?  (Like in some configuration file...NOTE: but we also don't see a config file after deploying the XBAP.)  We don't want to have to update the Service Reference for QA, Prod, Training, Stage, etc. on our local machines, compile and redeploy every time we need to migrate the application to a new environment.Thanks!

How do I generate service reference activities in my rehosted designer

  
My desginer is used to create lots of xamlx workflows.  These are hosted in app fabric. From Visual Studio I can add a service reference that points to my workflows, and it generates activities in my toolbar that I can use to call my service from another workflow. I'd like to do the same thing from my rehosted designer.  I figured it would be something like calling svcutil.exe, but couldn't find any information on this. Does anybody know how to create xaml activities by pointing at a service for a workflow designer rehost?   CheersJason Bolstad

WCF TCP-IP End Point Error : The message could not be dispatched because the service at the endpoint

  
"The message could not be dispatched because the service at the endpoint address 'net.tcp://192.168.237.129:9000/TerritoryMgt.svc' is unavailable for the protocol of the address." This is the Exception I am getting when I am trying to access my WCF Service with 'TCP-IP' end point. My Service Web.Config file is as follows. <system.serviceModel>     <bindings>       <webHttpBinding>         <binding name="JsonWebBinding">           <security mode="TransportCredentialOnly">             <transport clientCredentialType="Windows"></transport>           </security>         </binding>       </webHttpBinding>     </bindings>     <services>       <service behaviorConfiguration="SampleBehaviour" name="SeP.Library.ServiceLibrary.TerritoryMgt">         <endpoint address="" behaviorConfiguration="jsonEndPointBehaviour" binding="webHttpBinding" bindingConfiguration="JsonWebBinding"                &nbs

RESTful WCF Service endpoint not being found by client

  

I created a RESTful WCF service which I plan to call from a client app (a custom toolpart in a Sharepoint web part), but while I can access everything just fine from a browser the client throws this error:

EndpointNotFoundException: There was no endpoint listening at http://mymachine:3217/Services/CtmsService.svc that could accept the
message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnerException, if present, for more details.
---> System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.

My service's contract looks like this:

[ServiceContract]
public interface ICtmsService
{
  [OperationContract]
  [WebGet(UriTemplate = "/GetAllSites")]
  Dictionary<string, int?> GetAllSites();
}
...and the configuration looks like this: (which is more complicated due to needing dependency injection via Spring.NET to work)
