TCP to HTTP Binding?

Hello,

I am trying to figure out WCF API as we help the world, it is good to share info, this is not school anymore. You answer this, and it will be directly applicable to easing the traffic at the ports.

I have a client and a server. The server accepts HTTPS and they don't want that changed. This client sends out data out TCP, aka NetTcpBinding. How do I take the following code and make it outbound as HTTP? Thanks, you'll help the supply chain if you can answer this:

            endPointAddr = "net.tcp://" + textBox2.Text + ":1111/TempusWCF";
            NetTcpBinding tcpBinding = new NetTcpBinding();
            tcpBinding.TransactionFlow = false;
            tcpBinding.Security.Transport.ProtectionLevel = System.Net.Security.ProtectionLevel.EncryptAndSign;
            tcpBinding.Security.Transport.ClientCredentialType = TcpClientCredentialType.Windows;
            tcpBinding.Security.Mode = SecurityMode.None;

            EndpointAddress endpointAddress = new EndpointAddress(endPointAddr);

            Append("Attempt to connect to: " + endPointAddr);

            IService1 proxy = ChannelFactory<IService1>.CreateChannel(tcpBinding, endpointAddress);

            using (proxy as IDisposable)
            {
                Append("Message from server: " + (proxy.HelloWorld(textBox1.Text) + " back to you :)"));
            }

    Hi @1231231232121 ,
    Replace NetTcpBinding on the client side with WSHttpBinding to interact with SOAP servers that comply with WS-* protocols.

    EndpointAddress address = new EndpointAddress("https://uri/to/service.svc");  
    WSHttpBinding binding = new WSHttpBinding();  
    IService1 proxy = ChannelFactory<IService1>.CreateChannel(binding, address);  
    

    Here are the docs for details:
    WSHttpBinding: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/system.servicemodel.wshttpbinding?view=dotnet-plat-ext-6.0
    Configuring transport security (SSL) for WSHttpBinding: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/wcf/feature-details/transport-security-with-basic-authentication
    Best regards,
    Lan Huang
