How To Call WCF Http Service Behind SiteMinder

Mar 10, 2011

I am trying to call WCF 4 Http Web Services which are hosted within an ASP.NET application. The Service is protected behind SiteMinder.

I was wondering how I could programmatically call the web service, and more specifically what information will I need to pass to be authorized within SiteMinder to access my resources.

I am making the request from the ASP.NET application running on the same server, so I have access to the authentication cookie.

Jquery - Why 3 Extra HTTP Requests Are Done If You Use Ajax Call To A .net Web Service

Apr 4, 2011

When I was reading the blog Using jQuery to Consume ASP.NET JSON Web Services

I have seen this argument:

"By using jQuery to call the web service directly, we've eliminated over 100 KB of JavaScript and three extra HTTP requests. "

Why does the ASP.NET AJAX call to a .NET Web-Service needs 3 extra HTTP requests? What are those requests? (I wonder how jQuery manages the call with lesser HTTP requests in this case).

How To Pass Through Http Call With HTTP Handler

Jan 4, 2011


We are using the Facebook API and receive back URLs for profile image thumbnails. Unfortunately the protocol is restricted to just HTTP and it doesn't support HTTPS. The page on our site that hosts the thumbnails is always delivered via HTTPS, and if we use HTTP for the thumbnails the user will receive security warnings from their browser.


Build an HTTP Handler that "passes through" the image from the Facebook URL, but allow the handler to be called via HTTPS. Before I started coding I thought I could something like this:

Response.OutputStream = WebRequest.Create(FacebookUrlForThumbnail)

but I ended up having to save the image to an object in memory than write the image to the Response.OutputStream using the image save function.

Current Code:


This seems inefficient but I can't find a way of using the HTTP Handler as I orginally intended. Is there way of accomplishing the goal without creating the image memory and just "passing through" the call?

Upload File To ASP Web Service With HTTP / 1.1 POST

Mar 23, 2011

I'm trying to upload a file to an ASP 2.0 web service through HTTP 1.1 POST from a client-side application. If my web service function is declared as

Public Function UploadFile(ByVal file as Byte(), ByVal fileName as String) as String

The test form says the request should take this form:

POST address_of_service HTTP/1.1
Host: <host>
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Content-Length: length

How do I get my binary file data into that form? I've tried just converting the file data to a string and putting it in the body (file=<string_data_here>) but I get HTTP 500 errors back, complaining about not being able to convert it to System.Byte. I've got HTTP POST working fine elsewhere in my application with plain string parameters. Also, out of curiosity, why is it showing the file parameter twice?

HTTP Connection Be Passed From IIS / ASP To Another Application Or Service?

Dec 20, 2010

I'm looking into building an ASP.NET MVC application that exposes (other than the usual HTML pages) JSON and XML REST services, as well as Web Sockets. In a perfect world, I would be able to use the same URLs for the Web Sockets interface as I do for the other services (and determine which data to return by what the user agent requests) but, knowing that IIS wasn't built for persistent connections, I need to know if there's a way that I can accept (and possibly even handshake) the Web Sockets connection and then pass the connection off to another service running on the server. I do have a workaround in mind if this isn't possible that basically involves using ASP.NET to check for the Web Sockets connection upgrade headers, and responding with a HTTP/1.1 302 Found that points to a different host that has my Web Sockets service configured to directly listen to the appopriate endpoint(s).

WCF / ASMX :: Connecting To Web Service Via Http Post?

Jul 22, 2010

My web service uses .Net Framework 2.0. An e-learning application reads and updates an Access database in the web service via Http Post commands. I test the e-learning application and the web service using the version of IIS 7 that came with Windows Vista. I run IIS using localhost in my browser.

All works well. But a friend is having trouble running the same test with my files on her IIS 6 server. So I'm developing a checklist of issues in setting up an IIS 6 server to run a web service. I plan to include all possible causes of problems including permissions, accounts that are needed, etc. Are there resources to which I can go for this checklist?

WS.PreAuthenticate = false;
WS.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;

Setup Wcf Service For Http And Https And Also Add Username / Password To Its Access?

Oct 25, 2010

I am kinda new to WCF and the setting up of service and have 2 questions. My first question I have a service that will be accessed via https on a web server. However locally on my local IIS7, it will be accessed via http as https is not available. How can I set up a service to be accessed by both?

My second question is regarding how I can set up a service that requires a username and password to be accessed. The service that I have in place I dont want methods within it to be accessed unless the calling application has the rights to do so?

Here is an example of the relevant area of my web.config file.

<!-- standard AJAX binding that supports SSL -->
<binding name="TransportSecurity">
<security mode="Transport" />


In this config, the service is set up for http only and not username/password applied to it.

WCF / ASMX :: HTTP Error: 404, When Attempt To Access Service HTTPS On Different Port?

Feb 9, 2010

we have a situation where we need to host two certificates on the same server and because we can't have two different certificates on the same server running off the same port we have assigned one certificate run through another port, which is 4443.

So the URL to our web app is now....


If I punch this into a web browser I can access it fine, however, if I create a web reference using this URL in Visual Studio (2005) it can create the web reference fine and it builds ok. But whenever I call a web method on this service instance I get a HTTP 404 page not found Exception.

Is there any properties I need to set on the web service object to get this to work? I'm confused as to why it's not working.
