Hi Guys,

I have a WCF rest which is working fine in my development machine (Visual Studio web server). But I can not make it work in my QA server which is windows XP with IIS 5.1 (SSL enabled). ("Bad Request" or "not found")
If I go to the IIS and set the mapping ".*" to "aspnet_isapi.dll", then everything will be fine. but for some reason I don't want to do that (for example I will lose the default document behaviour!).

Is there any good way to solve this problem?

Here is my server code:
[AspNetCompatibilityRequirements(RequirementsMode= AspNetCompatibilityRequirementsMode.Allowed)]
public class AjaxJSON : WCFBase
  [WebGet(ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json, UriTemplate= "/Obj/Get/Status/{ObjID}")]                
  public AjaxJSONResponse_ObjIDStatus getImage(string ObjID)
     // Do something and return 

and I have this code in my Global.asax

RouteTable.Routes.Add(new ServiceRoute("Rest",
     new WebServiceHostFactory(),

here is my config file ( application works in my development machine without this configuration using default configuration)
    <serviceHostingEnvironment aspNetCompatibilityEnabled="true" />
            <binding name="AjaxJSONSBinding">
                <security mode="Transport">
                    <transport clientCredentialType="Windows" proxyCredentialType="None"/>
            <behavior name="AjaxJSONServiceBehavior">
                <serviceMetadata httpsGetEnabled="true"/>
                <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false"/>
        <service behaviorConfiguration="AjaxJSONServiceBehavior" name="Test.AjaxJSON">
            <endpoint address="" binding="basicHttpBinding" bindingConfiguration="AjaxJSONSBinding" contract="Test.AjaxJSON"/>

I have also tried calling the .svc from the Javascript (JQuery). but no chance!

all responses are welcome.

Thank you.

OK, I think there is no way to do that!
But at least I have found why I could not make a call directly to the .svc/...
for the other peaoples who may have the same problem:

I had my service in a folder (WCF) inside my site which is a normal directory and not a "virtual directory". So I had to call my service like this:
which did not work!

I remove the AjaxJson.svc and put it directly in the root folder and it solved the problem!

now the path is:
