Problems connecting to WCF service

Trying to connect to a WCF-service but get some error messages:

The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme Anonymous The authentication header received from the server was Basic

The provided URI scheme https is invalid expected http

The solution was to adjust web.config > system.serviceModel section. Add “Transport” to security mode. and clientCredentialType should be “Basic” if the server expects Basic Realm.

  <system.serviceModel>
    <bindings>
      <basicHttpBinding>
        <binding name="Document_Binding" closeTimeout="01:00:00" openTimeout="01:00:00" receiveTimeout="01:00:00" sendTimeout="01:00:00" maxReceivedMessageSize="2147483647">
          <security mode="Transport">
            <transport clientCredentialType="Basic" />
          </security>
        </binding>
      </basicHttpBinding>
    </bindings>
    <client>
    <endpoint ....../>
    </client>
  </system.serviceModel>

Good luck with your connections =)

Unable to connect to SQL DB via SSMS on Azure VM

I’ve installed SQL Server 2016 Express on a Azure Virtual Machine (VM). I opened the ports (port 1433) to connect to the server via Sql Server Management Studio (SSMS) but access was denied. I also opened the port inside the Azure portal on the server but still no success.
Then I came over a solution to the connection problem. You need to set the port number on IPAll among IP Addresses inside TCP/IP in Sql Server Configuration Manager. See screenshot below.

sql-server-ip-address
TCP Port 1433

How to navigate to the TCP Port setting:

  1. Open Sql Server Configuration Manager.
  2. Click on “Protocols” for “{INSTANCE NAME}” under Sql Server Network Configuration.
  3. Double click on TCP/IP.
  4. Click on tab “IP Addresses”.
  5. Scroll to the bottom and write the port number (1433 is default).

Good luck!
