I've a Silvelight 4 app that consumes a remote service. All is ok if the service (and the SL app too: they are in the same Web site) is published via standard http. If I'm using httpS (using a self signed certificate), the app works only in browser mode.
When I run the SL app Out Of Browser, it cannot contact the svc web service (reporting: the remote server returned an error: notfound).
I noticed that if I put a Webclient control on the SL app and navigate the same Web site where the svc is, it asks to authorize the access using the self signed certificate. After that, the SL client can contact the Webservice!
I also tried to trust and import the SSL certificate, but still nothing :(
Any way to skip SSL certificate validation in Silverlight?
