A channel of type TChannel to the specified endpoint address and transport address.

The transport address specified by the via is the location to which a message should initially be sent on its way to some other remote address specified by the to parameter at which the service is located. In most Internet scenarios, the via URI is the same as the Uri of the final to address of the service. You only distinguish between these two addresses when you want to do some kind of manual routing. Note that any channels created by this channel factory are closed when the channel factory is closed.
