catching WCF FaultException

Last Modified: 2012-05-08

I have a WCF service that uses message security with a custom validator.

In my validator I throw a FaultException if the username and/ir password is incorrect.  When I try and catch this is my client it is returned as a MessageSecurityException - the original faultException is in the InnerException.

How do I trap the original FaultException thrown by the validator?
