ASMX web-service over HTTP and HTTPS RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1966648016 posted

    I have a web-service I'm trying to call from within a Silverlight app. Running unencrypted (http) it works just fine. Over HTTPS, I simply don't get a response. The service is simple data retrieval, nothing more. Am I missing something here? I've never really worked with HTTPS before.

    As much as I'm grateful for your answer, it appears you did not read my initial post. My web-service works already, so that article is of no use to me.

    My problem is that it's not responding over HTTPS, it works just as intended otherwise. Also, that article shows the most basic way of connecting to a webservice, while I used that as a start, my code for calling the webservice automatically calls back to the issueing server as opposed to a hard coded one.

    Can you open the link to the webservice in a browser? Do you get a response then? Might be that there is simply no binding for https on your webservice. Also a pretty good tool for testing your webservice: http://www.eviware.com/soapUI/soapui-products-overview.html

    Have You seen the Cross-Domain xml or tried?

    <allow-from http-request-headers="SOAPAction">

              <domain uri="http://*"/>

               <domain uri="https://*" />

    I can call the service directly in my browser, but it won't give me any results, just placeholders, saying it has to be run locally. Which is the same thing I get when running it in browser over HTTP. I do have in my client access file the rules for allowing https and http, but still nothing.


    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
          <allow-from http-request-headers="SOAPAction">
    	<domain uri="http://*"/>
    	<domain uri="https://*"/>
            <resource path="/" include-subpaths="true"/>

    You can try calling your ASMX web-service through console application. See whether it wokrs?
