For one of the custom application, trying to connect to coreservice using netTcp binding (net.tcp://localhost:2660/CoreService/2011/netTcp) which is faster than basichttp binding. However, when I try to retrieve results using nettcp binded client, I am getting following error:

The socket connection was aborted. This could be caused by an error processing your message or a receive timeout being exceeded by the remote host, or an underlying network resource issue. Local socket timeout was '00:30:00'.

Can you please suggest what am I missing?

  • Please update your question with netTcp Binding configuration form your application's config file. Apr 10, 2014 at 5:45

    Check the Event Viewer on the CM server, for errors related to your request. I'm assuming the problem is with a mismatch in bindings between the server and client. Apr 10, 2014 at 8:11

The exception says about the receiveTimeout, but It could be misleading sometimes and the issue is with something else.

based on my experience with tridion core service, it could be with maxBufferSize maxBufferPoolSize maxReceivedMessageSize readerQuotas for the binding.

This Could be a possible duplicate of the issue Tridion 2011 SP1 Core Service Timeouts

There was problem with the configuration for netTCP binding. Found reference from the blog: http://rjin-tridion.blogspot.com/

Following the steps mentioned in the article resolved my issue. Now, I am able to connect and get results from core service.
