  • Hi FernandoGentile,

    This is Visual C# forum. As your issue is related to web service I am moving your thread to WCF forum for getting quick response. Hope this helps you.

  • Hi FernandoGentile,

    What is your service type? Is it WCF Service or asmx web service? Based on your url, it seems you create a web service in php.

    Based on the error message, it seems to be related with certificate. Have you installed the pfx file? If you access this address from IE, will you get any error or warning?

    For installing certificate, I suggest you refer the link below:
