Transports in Windows Communication Foundation
The transport layer is at the lowest level of the channel stack. The main transports used in Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) are HTTP, HTTPS, TCP, and named pipes. The topics in this section discuss choosing among these transports, configuring the transport, and setting tuning properties.
WCF includes additional transports. For information about Message Queuing (also known as MSMQ) transport, see Queues and Reliable Sessions. For information about peer-to-peer transport, see Peer-to-Peer Networking.
