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. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am receiving "there was no endpoint listening" exception while communicating with server
    (it runs under user context)from client(runs in system context).

    I am not receiving exception if both server and client runs in system context or in user context. i am receiving only if the server in user context and client in system context.

    I tried, impersonation request in the operation contract as well, it didn't solve the problem.

    need help on this.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Well if you know what localhost means then you should be able to figure it out that you don't have an endpoint listing on where the client is trying to contact the service  that is expected  to be running and listening on -- localhost.
