There was an error downloading 'http://118.139.161.77:81/Service1.svc'.
Unable to connect to the remote server
A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond 118.139.161.77:81

There was no endpoint listening at http://118.139.161.77:81/Service1.svc that could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnerException, if present, for more details.

If the service is defined in the current solution, try building the solution and adding the service reference again.

Is your service hosted on that server? Is the port 81 available?

Go to your web browser and paste http://118.139.161.77:81/Service1.svc you must see a test client page.

Hope it helps.

So, I think you answer your question.
Hi all,
I have same problem.

I see test client, but when I add service reference, I get error:

CSS
Unable to connect to the remote server
A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond 203.162.42.199:8080
Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved:


How can I fix it?
Thanks.
