WCF client calls slow
Today I was able to get back to my previous WCF client problem
that I had described here
. After looking at the old logs again, it was clear that the delay was on the server discoverability. The problem was that pinging was really fast, so it seemed like there was no client/server communication problem.
You can say that I'm a curious stubborn guy and since I thought the discovery thing was the problem, I decided to look at the IE settings. And guess what? It had the automatically detect settings of the LAN Settings option turned on. Turning it off solved the 1st time request. After knowing the problem, it was really easy to get a confirmation for it: Dr. Nicholas Allen
had already a great entry
which discusses this kind of problems.
