Issue with having a "." (dot) in the entity key RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to pass an ip address as a key to my service and realized that actually any key that has a "." dot in it, gives a 404.
    I've tried escaping the "." with %2E, but no luck.

    here is the fragment of the query string:
    and that is returning me a 404.

    However if I try
      myservice.svc/ipaddresses('10') , works fine

    I can understand why the usual characters (i.e.: "/") need to be escaped but, what is the issue with "." ?
