Having Geoserver installed locally in my machine, I'm currently doing a R&D by trying to access WMS service from Geoserver using ArcGIS API for Silverlight.
I'm trying to replicate the sample in ESRI site which deals with accessing wms service using ArcGIS API for Silverlight. I'm unable to view the map on the browser.

Given below is the xaml code used in my application:

    <UserControl x:Class="SilverlightApp.Beginners.MainPage"
    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot">
        <esri:Map WrapAround="True">

            <esri:WmsLayer ID="OtherWMSLayer" Layers="OSOpenData" Url="http://localhost:9595/geoserver/wms" Opacity="0.7" SupportedSpatialReferenceIDs="4326" SkipGetCapabilities="True" Version="1.1" />




Please can anyone shed light on this regards.
