    Hi all,  <o:p></o:p>

    I have a WCF service running on a server with custom username and password authentication. <o:p></o:p>Created and hosted service as described in below link. 
    https://www.codeproject.com/Articles/96028/WCF-Service-with-custom-username-password-authenti<o:p></o:p>

    I can access this service using server IP and port number. But when I am trying to access it using the load balanced address using https protocol, I am getting (Client is unable to finish the security negotiation within the configured timeout) error?<o:p></o:p>

    I have below question. 
    1. My service is running on port 83, with HTTP 
    protocol. Do I need to change it to HTTPS since load balancer address is HTTPS? <o:p></o:p>

    Please suggest me.

    If you can connect to the WCF directly then this is a question for your network admin or load balancer docs.
