Endpoint not found.

Hello,

I am trying to run the sample of WCF service provided by Microsoft.
Following is the sample that I am trying to run.
WF_WCF_Samples\WCF\Basic\Ajax\XmlAjaxService\CS

I also followed all pre-steps that are needed to be configured.

However when I try to run service at URL, I get following error.
http://localhost/ServiceModelSamples/service.svc

Error says.
"Endpoint not found."

There is not much details that is being displayed in Error, so it is very hard to detect error.

The web.config that comes with sample, has only following section added to it.

  <!-- WCF configuration -->
  <system.serviceModel>
    <standardEndpoints>
      <webHttpEndpoint>
        <!-- Use this element to configure the endpoint -->
        <standardEndpoint name="http://128.248.12.29/ServiceModelSamples/service.svc" />
      </webHttpEndpoint>
    </standardEndpoints>
  </system.serviceModel>

Any suggestions on how to resolve this error.

Thanks,
Bhavin

Change the ip address to 127.0.0.1 or localhost and make sure the path is correct, try copying the text file in the same location and reach it through browser. see if it opens,.. i.e. reachable.

I also tried using the wcf test client utility that comes within visual studio.
It gives following error.
