  • Ok, that is sounding more like a IIS issue; where your webserver is refusing the connection or your permissions for your user are not allowing the connection. Try not using the Local Connection and doing it as a Internet connection but talking to your localhost/ endpoint.

  • Ok, so that verifies your services are running and available; so your core issue then is going to be your account/access to the local services. As the 'Local' connection is driven by COM+/DCOM technology you can see things like local security policies blocking DCOM connections and services. Using the Rest/Soap endpoints is the easier to manage route to access.
