How do I determine the IP address of  a REST service and test the service

Last Modified: 2020-11-03
I have a C# WCF service which was running successfully in IIS on a windows server in the past. I am looking at getting it running again, locally first and then moving it back on to a windows server - but it's been a while !!!. The service has both SOAP & REST services defined. The SOAP services are working ok but the REST services are not. One of these rest services which was previously successfully called is as follows: http://80.93.xx.xxx/TiosServiceAlias/TiosService.TransactionService.srv/web/RunScheduledJobs

If I enter this into Chrome I just get a a 502 response

I know that the IP address has changed from when it was hosted on a windows server to now where it is hosted on my laptop.

1. How do I determine what the IP address should be for the REST Service ?  
2. What is the best way to test/debug a REST service which is not working ?

Appreciate any help/advice I can get on this
