  • Question

    I am using net.tcp protocol as a binding to my WCF service but when i run the project i am getting this error

    Could not find a base address that matches scheme net.tcp for the endpoint with binding NetTcpBinding. Registered base address schemes are [http].

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
        <compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.0" />
          <service behaviorConfiguration="servicebehave" name="NETTCP.Service1">
            <endpoint address="" binding="netTcpBinding"
              bindingConfiguration="" name="nettcp" contract="NETTCP.IService1" />
            <endpoint address="netTcpMex" binding="mexTcpBinding" bindingConfiguration=""
              name="netTcpMex" contract="IMetadataExchange" />
                <add baseAddress="net.tcp://localhost:8181"/>
                <add baseAddress="http://localhost:8181/Service1.svc"/>
            <behavior name="servicebehave">
              <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" />
              <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false" />

    Two things. First you are using the same port for http and net.tcp. You can't do that. Change the base address for net.tcp to something else, like net.tcp://localhost:8182

    Second, are you using IIS and WAS or self-hosting? If using IIS and WAS, there are some manual configuration steps. See this article for details: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/cc163357.aspx

    If we want to host nettcpbinding in IIS, please try to refer to the following steps:

    • Ensure the Net.Tcp Listener Adapter windows service is running
    • Ensure netTcp is listed as an enabled protocol for your website (In IIS Manager, go to Advanced settings for your site)
    • Ensure netTcp is listed as an enabled protocol for application (directory) that is hosting your services (In IIS Manager, go to the directory hosting your services and select Advanced Settings)
    • Ensure your IIS site has a binding for net.tcp, with the correct port number listed.

    For more information, please try to refer to following article:
    #Hosting WCF service with netTcpBinding or netNamedPipeBinding in IIS:

    And if you still can not solved your problem, please try to enable the <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true" />  to get more error information.

    Also enable the wcf tracing will help to find a cause.

    Best Regards.

    what do you mean "IIS" => Internet explorer? If so : this is using the Mex endpoint, not the service endpoint the application is using.
