Hi all!
I hope you can help me, I'm pretty much in the dark here.

I've created a WCF service for my WP8 app. It works just fine without the cert on the website, hosting the service. But when I try accessing the service using https (I've imported the cert, and created the binding in the IIS) I get this error:

Error: Cannot obtain Metadata from 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 Exchange Error URI: Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: ''. There was no endpoint listening at that could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnerException, if present, for more details. The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.HTTP GET Error URI: There was an error downloading ''. The request failed with HTTP status 403: Forbidden.

I've tried looking at a lot of resources, explaining TLS for WCF services, but the web config sections described in these don't exist in the web.config in my project :(

I'm totally new to exposing Services to the internet, so please bear with me :)
