Connecting to a local service? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, You said you could connect to the desktop server from a metro app. Can you please let us all know how to do it. I have created a windows service which is listening on a port in local host. i am trying to connect to the port using windows store app. I get connection refused by server error. 

    Can you please help?



    Cheers, Veena.

  • Hi Veena,

    Windows Store apps cannot connect back to other processes on the local host. They can perform network connections only to other systems (or back to the same app).
