How to debug WCF certificate issue? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi. I have set up a WCF send port to call a web service hosted by a trading partner. The trading partner has sent us a certificate to secure the service.

    I followed the steps here for installing the certificate on our BizTalk dev machine: putting the certificate in the trusted root, other people, and the Biztalk service account personal certificate stores.

    However, when calling the web service, we get the following error:

    "Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel with authority XXXXX"

    "The remote certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure"

    How can I determine what the problem is here? It could be a problem with the way the WCF send port has been set up, the way the certificates were installed, or a problem with the supplier hosting the service.

    Would a tool like Fiddler help to determine the underlying problem?
