EndpointAddressMessageFilter.IncludeHostNameInComparison Property

Gets a value that indicates whether the host name is included in the endpoint address comparison.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Dispatcher
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public bool IncludeHostNameInComparison { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the host name is included in the endpoint address comparison; otherwise, false.

If you have a web service installed on your local machine, there are many equivalent ways to reference it, including the following:

  • http://localhost/foo.svc


  • http://[my-machine-name]/foo.svc

  • http://[my-machine-name].[my-company].com/foo.svc.

The default value of this property is false, so the above URIs all resolve to the same endpoint, unless you change this property.
