Description of Problem:

I have critical problem with WCF secure mode connection on client (used mono 2.10.3). When I try connect to server (server runtime is .NET) without any secure mode then it's working fine for me but for this my server also not used authentification.

So, when I added to server and client some code for authentificate, for example:

NetTcpBinding binding = new NetTcpBinding(SecurityMode.TransportWithMessageCredential);
binding.Security.Message.ClientCredentialType = MessageCredentialType.UserName;
binding.Security.Transport.ClientCredentialType = TcpClientCredentialType.Certificate;


                serviceHost.Credentials.UserNameAuthentication.UserNamePasswordValidationMode =

                serviceHost.Credentials.UserNameAuthentication.CustomUserNamePasswordValidator =
                    new Platezhka.Common.AuthorizationManager.CustomUserNamePasswordValidator(Properties.Settings.Default.platezhkadbConnectionString,

                serviceHost.Authorization.ServiceAuthorizationManager =
                    new Platezhka.Common.AuthorizationManager.CustomServiceAuthorizationManager(Properties.Settings.Default.platezhkadbConnectionString);

Then it's stoped work, becouse my client always crashed. 

Please Attention: When I tried switch a runtime on client from Mono to .NET then it's became working fine. On Mono I always see an exception message about System.IO.Exception. 

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Open attachment archive. Next, start WcfMonoServer on .NET 3.5 on Windows 7 or other Windows.
2. Open WcfTcpClient. Start it on Mono 2.10.3 and try open connect.

Actual Results:
Always crash with System.IO.Exception

Expected Results:
Must work as on .NET3.5

Please attach sample as a ZIP file.

Also, be warned that WCF support is partial, and only considered alpha-level, since there are many pieces not completed.

Of course, I understand that WCF support is partial.

I already added attach sample as a ZIP file.

I noticed one detail:
  if insert the SecurityMode to not in "None" it's always throw exception.

Any update on this issue since 6 years now ???
This problem still exists even though the status is in progress.

I believe nobody works on this issue. 
Please advise.

Can't wait anymore.
