Ok I am trying to get a secure WCF service setup, but it is returning a blank response when I view the ?WSDL or /mex/ meta-data.

Here's my web.config:



Any ideas?
<system.serviceModel>
    <bindings>
        <wsHttpBinding>
            <binding name="WsHttpBindingConfig">
                <security mode="TransportWithMessageCredential">
                    <transport clientCredentialType="None" />
                    <message clientCredentialType="UserName" />
                </security>
            </binding>
        </wsHttpBinding>
    </bindings>
    <services>
        <service name="WService" behaviorConfiguration="ServiceBehavior">
            <!-- Service Endpoints -->
            <endpoint address="" binding="wsHttpBinding" bindingConfiguration="WsHttpBindingConfig" name="wsHttpEndpoint" contract="IWService"></endpoint>
            <endpoint address="mex" binding="mexHttpsBinding" contract="IMetadataExchange"/>
            <host>
                <baseAddresses>
                    <add baseAddress="https://MyHost.com/MyApp/"  />
                </baseAddresses>
                
                
            </host>
        </service>
    </services>
    <behaviors>
        <serviceBehaviors>
            <behavior name="ServiceBehavior">
                
                <!-- To avoid disclosing metadata information, set the value below to false and remove the metadata endpoint above before deployment -->
                <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" httpsGetEnabled="true"/>
                <!-- To receive exception details in faults for debugging purposes, set the value below to true.  Set to false before deployment to avoid disclosing exception information -->
                <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false"/>
                <serviceCredentials>
                    <userNameAuthentication
                        userNamePasswordValidationMode="MembershipProvider"
                        membershipProviderName="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider"/>
                </serviceCredentials>
                <serviceAuthorization
                    principalPermissionMode="UseAspNetRoles"
                    roleProviderName="AspNetSqlRoleProvider" />
            </behavior>
        </serviceBehaviors>
    </behaviors>
</system.serviceModel>

Did you test your wcf service separately, and it is working fine?

Is your call from client reaches wcf service?

If yes then enable tracing to see to details.http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms733025.aspx

I figured this out, and it turns out that I am in fact an idiot. I use chrome, which hides XML responses. View:Source did it.
