WCF on IIS 7.0 Service Security Configuration Issue using Basic Authentication

I have spend the last couple of days trying to solve an issue when hosting a WCF service in SQL 2008 Server and IIS 7.0.

This problem only occurs when I have anonymous authentication disabled and using Basic Authentication over SSL as shown in the web.config extract below

    <security mode="Transport">
        <transport clientCredentialType="Basic" />
    </security>

Basically when i try to access MeterReadingService.svc file I get an IIS error saying it cannot find the resource \Account\Login.
It seems I am being redirected to a login page. Forms authentication is not enabled on IIS


Details of Error:

HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found
The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

Module IIS Web Core

Can you indicate any pointers why this is happening or how can i log the cause of this error?

Hi,

Give iis user, network service permission to that physical folder where you install your application.

Also try this.

In IIS manager select your web application under sites.
Once you select your webiste in features view, under IIS, click on Handler Mappings.
Under Actions, click Add Managed Handler.

Add following

Request Path: Reserved.ReportViewerWebControl.axd

Type: Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.HttpHandler, Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=9.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a

Name: Reserved-ReportViewerWebControl-axd

let us know

Hi,

Thanks for the information, unfortunately it did not work.

I still have the same error.

Hi I solved my issue by adding these to my App settings in web.config:

<add key="autoFormsAuthentication" value="false" />
<add key="enableSimpleMembership" value="false"/>


I found this solution in stack overflow here:
