WCF Service BasicHttpBinding Internet RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    I created a WCF Service with BasicHttpBinding.

    This is config:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
        <add key="aspnet:UseTaskFriendlySynchronizationContext" value="true" />
        <compilation debug="true" />
            <behavior name="SampleSvcBehavior">
              <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true" />
              <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" httpGetUrl="http://localhost:8080/SampleSvc/mex" />
          <service behaviorConfiguration="SampleSvcBehavior" name="PLEXTask.WcfHost.CalcService">
            <endpoint address="http://localhost:8080/SampleSvc" binding="basicHttpBinding"
              bindingConfiguration="" name="SampleSvcBasicHttpEndPoint" contract="PLEXTask.WcfHost.ICalcService" />
            <endpoint address="http://localhost:8080/SampleSvc/mex" binding="mexHttpBinding"
              bindingConfiguration="" name="SampleSvcMexEndPoint" contract="IMetadataExchange" />

    I want to access this server from another computer by internet.

    How can I do this?

  • Hi,

    If the computers are in the same domain. Then you can use the the Ip address instead of using localhost.
    And it seems that your wcf service is self-host. Then I creat the following example by hosting in the console application, please try to check it:

    class Program
            static void Main(string[] args)
                ServiceHost host = new ServiceHost(typeof(PLEXTask.WcfHost.CalcService));
                host.AddServiceEndpoint(typeof(PLEXTask.WcfHost.ICalcService), new BasicHttpBinding(), 
    "http://your IP address:8080/SampleSvc"); ServiceMetadataBehavior behavior = new ServiceMetadataBehavior(); behavior.HttpGetEnabled = true; behavior.HttpGetUrl = new Uri("http://your IP address:8080/SampleSvc/mex"); host.Description.Behaviors.Add(behavior); host.Open(); Console.WriteLine("wcf is running"); Console.ReadLine(); } }

    Best Regards,
