  • User52625461 posted


    I am trying to host web api on IIS 8 , but somehow I am not able to host it on IIS ? I am using framework 4.0.

    Below is the error I am getting while calling web api method from client side

    A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond xx.xxx.xxx.xx:xxx

    Can anyone tell what settings I need to do ?

    The web api is not reachable with the URL you used.

    If the Url is correct, see if the service is running with localhost first. If this is ok, check the firewall, network firewalls, reverse proxies etc. You might need to change your host file on the server PC.

    greetings Damien
