    Hello fellas

    Me and my team uses telerik silverlight fine. Nowadays we are advancing from http to https. The entire project has moved https, works well! , except telerik reports. The project uses custom binding. Is there any reference which uses https?  please help.

    The Reporting WCF service is  standard WCF service, and as such can be configured to work over HTTPS. Please check the following help article - How to: Enable SSL for Telerik Reporting WCF service. If the described configuration does not help you to resolve the problem, please double check the endpoints settings, at both client and sever. Also verify the used custom Bindings use proper security mode.

    I hope the above information helps you.

    Check out Telerik Analytics, the service which allows developers to discover app usage patterns, analyze user data, log exceptions, solve problems and profile application performance at run time. Watch the videos and start improving your app based on facts, not hunches.

    Hello Stef..
    I carefully  followed your instructions, and took  a deep search through google , telerik reporting with https (SSL) enabled keywords, but my problem still persists similar to   ,with no solution.
    I think, the cause of the problem is unknown... I tried changing endpoints, web,config, but no result....

    Could you give me a demo, representing the telerik demo with https SSL enabled working?

    So, I would see the real cause of this problem.

    Please test the following settings:
    1. Configure the service as follows:
          <serviceHostingEnvironment aspNetCompatibilityEnabled="true" />
              <binding name="BasicHttpBindingConfig">
                <security mode="Transport" />
              <binding name="WebHttpBindingConfig">
                <security mode="Transport" />
            <service name="Telerik.Reporting.Service.ReportService" behaviorConfiguration="ReportServiceBehavior">
              <endpoint address="" binding="basicHttpBinding" bindingConfiguration="BasicHttpBindingConfig" contract="Telerik.Reporting.Service.IReportService">
                  <dns value="localhost" />
              <endpoint address="resources" binding="webHttpBinding" bindingConfiguration="WebHttpBindingConfig" behaviorConfiguration="WebBehavior" contract="Telerik.Reporting.Service.IResourceService" />
              <endpoint address="mex" binding="mexHttpsBinding" contract="IMetadataExchange" />
              <behavior name="ReportServiceBehavior">
                <serviceMetadata httpsGetEnabled="true" httpGetEnabled="false" />
                <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false" />
              <behavior name="WebBehavior">
                <webHttp />

      The service would run at https://localhost/CSharp.SilverlightDemo.Web/ReportService.svc

    2. In the client we specifying the security mode and the endpoint address of the service
      Stream file;
           void Test()
               var fileDlg = new SaveFileDialog();
               fileDlg.Filter = "PDF files|*.pdf|All files|*.*";
               if (fileDlg.ShowDialog() == true)
                   //set any deviceInfo settings if necessary
                   var deviceInfo = new NameValueDictionary();
                   //set any report parameter value if necessary
                   var parameters = new NameValueDictionary();
                   this.file = fileDlg.OpenFile();
                   BasicHttpBinding bndReport = new BasicHttpBinding(BasicHttpSecurityMode.Transport);
                   bndReport.MaxReceivedMessageSize = int.MaxValue;
                   bndReport.MaxBufferSize = int.MaxValue;
                   string ReportServiceURL = new Uri(App.Current.Host.Source, "../ReportService.svc").ToString();
                   var serviceClient = new ReportServiceClient(bndReport, new EndpointAddress(ReportServiceURL));
                                           "Telerik.Reporting.Examples.CSharp.ReportCatalog, CSharp.ReportLibrary",
                   serviceClient.RenderCompleted += new EventHandler<RenderEventArgs>(serviceClient_RenderCompleted);
           void serviceClient_RenderCompleted(object sender, RenderEventArgs e)
               var result = e.RenderingResult;
               if (this.file != null)
                   this.file.Write(result.DocumentBytes, 0, result.DocumentBytes.Length);
                   this.file = null;

      The above settings assume the application is hosted in IIS with enabled SSL, where the application runs at https://localhost/CSharp.SilverlightDemo.Web.
