retrieving online data with a wcf service RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm facing a problem using a wcf service which use an API to retrieve data from yahoo finance.

    Indeed, when the web service calls the API method which should retrieve the data, I keep getting the following error :

    "An exception occurred during a WebClient request."

    I think that the reason is because the API goes online to retrieve some data but wcf won't allow the connection.

    Can you help me with that issue,

    Thank you

  • You're going to have to show us some of your code and what you've specified in the Config file. Also, I think that this question would most likely be answered better in the WCF forum, so if you don't mind, I'm going to move it there.

  • we need more details / code to actually help you. however, lets rule this out:

     - make sure this is not an file access issue: make sure you are accessing files in My Documents instead of C: or so

    hope this helps!
