WCF REST Service works with IP address but not with hostname RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    I have a WCF REST Service that went from localhost to public internet. I created a no-ip address, did the port forwarding from the router and all that stuff.

    So lets say that my no-ip account has associated a hostname myname.no-ip.org and a temporary IP address (8206 is the port of my service).

    The strange thing is that when I use the IP address in the URL, everything works fine (GET, POST, DELETE methods) but when I use my hostname instead only GET methods work correctly, the POST and DELETE methods return a 405 status code (method not allowed).

    I have tried a lot of webconfig stuff but couldn't resolve the issue, does somebody have the answer? Please, I have been struggling with this for a couple of days.
