WCF Server Config - "Invalid or expired security context"

So, in my dev environment my tests to my local service works but when I deploy it - I get the following error on my unit tests (Automated build server spits this exception out).

"System.ServiceModel.FaultException : The message could not be processed. This is most likely because the action 'http://tempuri.org/IUserTasks/GetUsers' is incorrect or because the message contains an invalid or expired security context token or because there is a mismatch between bindings. The security context token would be invalid if the service aborted the channel due to inactivity. To prevent the service from aborting idle sessions prematurely increase the Receive timeout on the service endpoint's binding."

Dev env. is Vista w/  VS2008,
Published to  an XP IIS 5.1 box  with .net 3.5 sp1 installed.

The following are my config files and I am not sure if it is a config issue preventing this communication or if its my machine security.  I know I shouldn't need any certificates as I'm explicitly declaring no security for the service and client.  

Any Ideas?

Hi,

I'm not 100% but your bindings look a little messed up. My bindings look like the following:

-- Client

  <system.serviceModel>
    <bindings>
      <basicHttpBinding>
        <binding name="BasicHttpBinding_IAccounting" closeTimeout="00:01:00"
          openTimeout="00:01:00" receiveTimeout="00:10:00" sendTimeout="00:01:00"
          allowCookies="false" bypassProxyOnLocal="false" hostNameComparisonMode="StrongWildcard"
          maxBufferSize="10000000" maxBufferPoolSize="524288" maxReceivedMessageSize="10000000"
          messageEncoding="Text" textEncoding="utf-8" transferMode="Buffered"
          useDefaultWebProxy="true">
          <readerQuotas maxDepth="32" maxStringContentLength="200000" maxArrayLength="200000"
            maxBytesPerRead="4096" maxNameTableCharCount="16384" />
          <security mode="None">
            <transport clientCredentialType="None" proxyCredentialType="None"
              realm="" />
            <message clientCredentialType="UserName" algorithmSuite="Default" />
          </security>
        </binding>
      </basicHttpBinding>
    </bindings>
    <client>
      <endpoint address="http://localhost:3332/Accounting.svc" binding="basicHttpBinding"
        bindingConfiguration="BasicHttpBinding_IAccounting" contract="AccountingSVC.IAccounting"
        name="BasicHttpBinding_IAccounting" />
  </system.serviceModel>


-- Server

  <system.serviceModel>
    <services>
      <service behaviorConfiguration="Usit.Services.AccountingBehavior"
        name="Usit.Services.Accounting">
        <endpoint address="" binding="basicHttpBinding" contract="Usit.Services.IAccounting">
          <identity>
            <dns value="localhost" />
          </identity>
        </endpoint>
        <endpoint address="mex" binding="mexHttpBinding" contract="IMetadataExchange" />
      </service>
    </services>
    <behaviors>
      <serviceBehaviors>
        <behavior name="Usit.Services.AccountingBehavior">
          <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" />
          <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true" />
        </behavior>
      </serviceBehaviors>
    </behaviors>    
  </system.serviceModel>
