Description Jochen Kühner 2013-04-06 04:57:53 UTC
I have a project wich is running verry well on NET 4.0.

On Mono I got the following Exception:

Exception Object of type 'System.ServiceModel.MonoInternal.DuplexServiceRuntimeChannel' doesn't match target type 'System.ServiceModel.IClientChannel' at System.Reflection.MonoMethod.Invoke (System.Object obj, BindingFlags invokeAttr, System.Reflection.Binder binder, System.Object[] parameters, System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture) [0x00078] in /mcc/mono/mono/mcs/class/corlib/System.Reflection/MonoMethod.cs:243 at System.Reflection.MethodBase.Invoke (System.Object obj, System.Object[] parameters) [0x00000] in /mcc/mono/mono/mcs/class/corlib/System.Reflection/MethodBase.cs:114 at System.ServiceModel.ClientRealProxy.DoInvoke (IMessage inputMessage) [0x0003a] in /mcc/mono/mono/mcs/class/System.ServiceModel/System.ServiceModel/ClientRealProxy.cs:100 at System.ServiceModel.ClientRealProxy.Invoke (IMessage inputMessage) [0x00000] in /mcc/mono/mono/mcs/class/System.ServiceModel/System.ServiceModel/ClientRealProxy.cs:86 at System.Runtime.Remoting.Proxies.RealProxy.PrivateInvoke (System.Runtime.Remoting.Proxies.RealProxy rp, IMessage msg, System.Exception& exc, System.Object[]& out_args) [0x0009c] in /mcc/mono/mono/mcs/class/corlib/System.Runtime.Remoting.Proxies/RealProxy.cs:193

I looked in the Source and think it's correct that the Exceptin Occures (IClientChannel is not implement on DuplexServiceRuntimeChannel)

Do you need more Info? some Parts of my code?

Parts of my Proxy creation:

bind = new NetTcpBinding();
EndpointAddress myEndpoint = new EndpointAddress(address);
var akFactory = (new DuplexChannelFactory<T>(new InstanceContext(callbackObject), bind));
proxy = akFactory.CreateChannel(myEndpoint);

I have the same issue using Mono 3.2.3 on OSX.
