Hi Everyone,

I'm having trouble posting data to a WCF Service via HTTP Post and send a redirect response back to the user.

I only get a blank page back from the post. Are there restrictions on HTTP posting from another domain in WCF?

If somebody could point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks

Nick
[ServiceContract]
public interface IXXLeadServiceWCF
{
 [WebInvoke(UriTemplate = "invoke")]
 [OperationContract]
 void CreateCallBack(Stream input);
}

[OperationBehavior]
public void CreateCallBack(Stream input)
{
 StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(input); 
 string s = sr.ReadToEnd(); 
 sr.Dispose(); 
 NameValueCollection qs = HttpUtility.ParseQueryString(s); 
 string firstName = qs["firstName"];

WebOperationContext.Current.OutgoingResponse.StatusCode = HttpStatusCode.Redirect;
WebOperationContext.Current.OutgoingResponse.Location = "http://www.test.com";
}

<form method="post" action="http://wcf.xxx.com/LeadService/LeadService.svc"> <input name="firstName" id="firstName" class="txt_input" type="text" value="" /></form>

Can you post the code of the page consuming the web service?
In a wcf web service, you define the host configuration parameters to define your communication, but you do not need to define line 22.
Your page should consume and display your service response, Check:

Note: If more help required please post host config file/relevant wcf setup code.
