and i puted both in Client;

and this is my code in Client :

System.ServiceModel.Channels.Binding binding = GreetingServiceClient.CreateDefaultBinding();
           string address = GreetingServiceClient.EndpointAddress.Uri.ToString();
           GreetingServiceClient m_proxy = new GreetingServiceClient(binding, new EndpointAddress(address));
           string result = m_proxy.Greet(textBox1.Text).ToString();
           textBox2.Text = result;

when i try to run the service and the client the error above is appear in CFClientBase.cs at this part
return requestChannel.Request(msg);

I'm not sure I understand your scenario completely, but to me it sounds like you're having a service running on your desktop computer that you're trying to access using a client running on a mobile device (or emulator).

If this is the case then you cannot use localhost as the address because that would point to the mobile device rather than the desktop computer. You need to specify the address of the desktop using an "external" IP or host name.

It works when you're running the desktop client because that is running on the same box as the service so localhost is correct then.

Hope this helps,
