I am pretty new to WCF and writing my first web service in which I am finding some difficulty.
I am hosting wcf web service on IIS with basicHttpBinding and windows authentication .. It is working very well. whenever I hit the web service URL , I am asked to enter windows username password for verification which is perfectly fine..
Now I would like to send this web service URL to client so that he can consume it via adding web reference but I am not sure how would it work at client's end ? Do i need to give him windows credential to use web service ? If this is the case then i would not be happy to give client production server's credential ..
can you please guide me how exactly this authentication work ? or what are the other options do i have ?
