Web Service EndPoint

In my VB code do I determine if the Endpoind address is "down?"

In other words, at times the database transactionlog may be full, or the server itself is down.

Dim wcfService = New StagingService.Service1Client
wcfService.Endpoint.Address = New System.ServiceModel.EndpointAddress(AppConfig("WebServiceIP"))

That did the trick.

Here's my final solution

    Public Function isWebServiceUp() As Boolean
        Dim mexClient As MetadataExchangeClient
        Dim isServiceUp As Boolean = True
            Dim address As String = New System.ServiceModel.EndpointAddress(AppConfig("WebServiceIP")).ToString()
            mexClient = New MetadataExchangeClient(New Uri(address), MetadataExchangeClientMode.HttpGet)
            ' if service down I get the exception
            Dim metadata As MetadataSet = mexClient.GetMetadata()
        Catch ex As Exception
            isServiceUp = False
        End Try
        Return isServiceUp
    End Function
