Issue with WCF Service RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently we deployed our existing WCF service on Windows 2012 R2 (with 4.6 framework). When I'm trying to run it on port 443 (basically no other ports are binded), I'm getting the following issue

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

    Appreciate your response.

  • usually it' must be bound for some applications in under normal usage, It's offen bound in Microsoft service like report service or else ( You could find some articles by google.)

    Unless it 's boned  by virus that you don't know. otherwise no port will be bound by no application run.

  • By the way, You need to stop serivce if port is bound by Micrsoft application service. Then you could use this port that you want.

  • https must set [SSL]  up to every kind of server service such as IIS, apache, rails(If you use).

  • Hi Prasad,

    Do you publish to IIS? Did your web side bindings enable http 80 port?

    Which URL did you use when getting this error? I suggest you check whether you enable “<serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" httpsGetEnabled="true"/>”.

    Best Regards,
