We are using aspdotnetstorefront software for our online store.
When a customer goes to check out from the store they get a run time error.
When we go to web server and try to checkout we get to the complete error (see attachment):
IOException: Received an unexpected EOF or 0 bytes from the transport stream.

Were do I start to trouble shoot.

    How do you and this fix and where?

    In order to config this you have set to:

    System.Net.ServicePointManager.SecurityProtocol = Net.SecurityProtocolType.Ssl3

    After this the service will do the hand shake and continue, now the only point to resolve is how to set this options in the default "Add Web Reference"....
