WCF/WF - HTTP Keep-alive and ServiceHost / C# - Asked By Nate B on 10-Sep-10 01:46 PM

How can I enable/disable the HTTP Keep-alive and set the connection timeout of a self hosted service using the application configuration and the C# ServiceHost?

For example,

MyService service = new MyService();
ServiceHost serviceHost = new ServiceHost(service);

What do I have to put in the application configuration to set the http keep alive and timeout.

<!-- NOTE: Showing only a portion of the configuration -->
    <service name="MyService" behaviorConfiguration="myServiceBehavior">
    <endpoint address="http://localhost:9005/"
  <!-- WHERE TO ENABLE/DISABLE http keep alive and timeout -->

The settings under IIS are found if you go to the IIS Manager.  Right click on the "Default Web Site"->Properties->Web Site->Connections.  Can I do that through the system.serviceModel configuration?

Thanks, Nate.
