Could not find a base address that matches scheme net.tcp for the endpoint with binding NetTcpBinding.

Last week I finally got some good news from our server team, the new Windows Server 2008 R2 production server is ready. So I started by installing the first application, but no success. I ended up with the following error message:

“Could not find a base address that matches scheme net.tcp for the endpoint with binding NetTcpBinding. Registered base address schemes are [http].”

And the related yellow screen of death:

The first thing I checked was if non-http activation was enabled. So I went to the Control Panel, clicked on Turn Windows features on or off. There I browsed to the  Microsoft .NET Framework 3.x part and validated if both Windows Communication Foundation HTTP Activation and Windows Communication Foundation Non-HTTP Activation were checked. This was the case so the investigation continued…

On the MSDN website I saw that one extra step is required. To support net.tcp activation, the default Web site must first be bound to a net.tcp port. You can do this by using Appcmd.exe, which is installed with the IIS 7.0 management toolset. In an administrator-level Command Prompt window, run the following command.

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe set site "Default Web Site" -+bindings.[protocol='net.tcp',bindingInformation='808:*']
