Hosting WCF Service with netTcpBinding on IIS7

Web.Config should have following configuration settinggs to hosting WCF service on IIS7(WAS):

        <binding name="tcpbinding" portSharingEnabled="true">
          <security mode="None"></security>

Trouble Shooting on IIS7.*
If following exception thrown while adding service reference-
Error: Cannot obtain Metadata from net.tcp://win-2008.cspl:9002/Multibinding/Service1.svc If this is a Windows (R) Communication Foundation service to which you have access, please check that you have enabled metadata publishing at the specified address.  For help enabling metadata publishing, please refer to the MSDN documentation at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=65455.WS-Metadata Exchange Error    URI: net.tcp://win-2008.cspl:9002/Multibinding/Service1.svc    Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: 'net.tcp://win-2008.cspl:9002/Multibinding/Service1.svc'.    Could not connect to net.tcp://win-2008.cspl:9002/Multibinding/Service1.svc.

Step1: Make sure following services is enable for net.tcp

a.                Net.Tcp Listener Adapter
b.               Net.Tcp Port Sharing Service

Step2: IIS Manager -> Select Hosted service -> Action pane -> Advance setting ->
           See Enable Protocol, by default http protocol there, need to specify net.tcp with comma separated

Step3: Make sure your application pool is running in classic mode




Step4: Right click on Default Website -> Edit bindings
            Make sure net.tcp protocol information there



Step5: Check firewall, Create Inbound and out bound rule for port which we are using.
