I'm just trying to get a hello world WCF example running over NetTcp with x509 certificate.
I've created the 2 X Self-Certifiicate on the server (its a remote machine with static IP), one for the root, the other for the Personnel using MakeCert.exe.
I ran the httpcfg command to bind SSL to a port (8001).
I exported them to my client machine.
In the Service config I just put the BaseAddress as the same port I httpcfg'd to and in serviceBehaviours:
            <serviceCertificate findValue="f67f6d74e3160bfec56479402e3a26bf24d6gf55"
                                x509FindType="FindByThumbprint" />
The service seems to run.
In the client I put the
          <behavior name="DoesThisGoAnywhere">
              <clientCertificate  storeName="My" storeLocation="LocalMachine" findValue="Dev Certification Authority"
                                  x509FindType="FindByIssuerName" />
The error I'm getting is 'The client certificate is not provided. Specify a client certificate in ClientCredentials'
I'm trying differnet combinations of the x509findtype, thumbprint etc, but its doesn't seem to help.
