    Error when add reference of the WCF service

    Hi,

    I am new to the WCF and i was trying to do "Hello world" sample.
    but i m getting error when i add the reference of my WCF service to another
    project.
    Error is like that -

    The document was understood, but it could not be processed.
    - The WSDL document contains links that could not be resolved.
    - There was an error downloading
    'http://Mytech/TestService/Service.svc?xsd=xsd0'.
    - The request failed with HTTP status 504: Proxy Timeout ( The connection
    timed out. ).

    Can anyone please help me to solve this error?

    There seem to be a few common issues, that I keep running into that cause
    this:

    Issue #0 - You forgot to run the setup script for the samples. These scripts
    are in:
    [...]\TechnologySamples\Setup\[CS]|[VB]

    Issue #1 - ASP.Net 2.0.x isn't installed correctly. Fix this with
    "aspnet_regiis /i".

    Issue #2 - the SVC file type isn't properly mapped. Fix this (in IIS5 /
    WinXP) by:
    - Pull up the IIS Admin tool
    - right click on your web site, and go to properties
    - Go to "Home Directory" tab and select "Configuration"
    - In the Mappings tab that comes up, look for ".svc". It's probably not
    there.
    - "Add".
    - the Executable is,
    C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_isapi.dll
    - the verbs are: GET,HEAD,POST,DEBUG
    - I leave everything else as it's default.
    - Restart IIS (probably not needed, to be honest).

    Issue #3 - Permission
    - the ASPNET account needs rights on your directory. Grant that account
    rights to your stuff.
    - I would never recommend adding the "administrator" group to the ASPNET
    account (especially on a dev box!) but if you were to do this, there's a
    good chance it'll work.
