I have the attached project which works like it should in the VS 2012 environment but when I try to run from a workstation over the web (local on a Hyper-V 2012 IE says to log in with a different account - pain in the butt), if I go to the url and svc address: https://ofx.proautomation.com/cloudw2transferservice.svc the wsdl screen comes up but with I try:

https://ofx.proautomation.com/cloudw2transferservice.svc/ofxtransfer/12345
I get a 404 return error.  Seems like pretty simple stuff but I can't get the GET or POST to work in POSTMAN or RestClient-Tool.

Any help is always appreciated.
Project on server is attached.
The site would only let me upload the attached files, I hope that is enough.

What does the ofxtransfer do with the 12345 parameter? Maybe it is trying to look it up somewhere and not finding it, thus returning the HTTP 404.

Hello,
Thank you for the response. I believe I fat fingered the original text in the question, the ofxtransfer should be ofxrequest as in the interface.  The URI Template is ofxrequest/{id} and the code returns 'this is my return{id}'

Tried to go back to basics but I still can't get it to work.
My SOAP project works so I started form scratch with REST and then figured I would just cut and paste the processing code once I got it to work.  My ultimate goal is a POST function, but one step at a time.  I just wish it was a step forward. To get the svc to uploaded I put a png extension on it.

Your help is appreciated.

I made great progress today, I actually got it to work.  I think it was as simple as using http instead of https.  I thought it was setup to use https.  Always check the obvious stuff first!

I need some pointers to setup the HTTPS protocol and
I'm trying to get my xml request to get sent over using the POST command, so that is my next challenge.
Not sure if I need to close this and open a different ticket or not.

Lack of timely response.  Unsure if it was the context of the question, the posting tags or people being too busy.
