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

"http://128.248.12.29/ServiceModelSamples/service.svc"

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.

Error:
Cannot obtain Metadata from http://localhost/ServiceModelSamples/service.svc If this is a Windows (R) Communication Foundation service to which you have access, please check that you have enabled metadata publishing at the specified address.  

For help enabling metadata publishing, please refer to the MSDN documentation at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=65455.WS-Metadata Exchange Error    

URI: http://localhost/ServiceModelSamples/service.svc    Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: 'http://localhost/ServiceModelSamples/service.svc'.  
There was no endpoint listening at http://localhost/ServiceModelSamples/service.svc that could accept the message.

This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnerException, if present, for more details.    The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.HTTP GET Error    URI: http://localhost/ServiceModelSamples/service.svc    There was an error downloading 'http://localhost/ServiceModelSamples/service.svc'.    

The request failed with HTTP status 404: Not Found.
