Hi all,<BR>I tried to access the object in the server applying the concept of serialization and remoting. I created a class and a service. also i have created the remoting host and the installer to install the service in my system. i have also created the client application to access the remote service. i have created all the above in my machine and my machine is not a server. The problem is when I try to run the client application I get the following exception ...<BR>System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it<BR> I think there is some problem with the object url which i have specified in the registerwellknownclient method.<BR><BR>since everything is in my machine itself i have specified the object url as "tcp://localhost/servicename"<BR><BR>is that alright.help me out please....<BR>pavithra<BR>
