Question / Problem:

What may be the problem if the KTM Thin Client errors with "Connection to server is broken" on Windows Server 2008?

Answer / Solution:

Note that this error is generic and that this is a solution for one possible cause of the error.

This specific cause will write the following exception to the event log:

System.ServiceModel.ServiceActivationException:
The service'/KTMThinClientServer/AuthenticationService.svc' cannot be activated due to an exception during compilation. 
The exception message is: This collection already contains an address with scheme http. There can be at most one address 
per scheme in this collection. Parameter name: item. ---> System.ArgumentException: This collection already contains an address
 with scheme http. There can be at most one address per scheme in this collection.

The problem is an invalid IIS 7 configuration. To fix this:

  1. Open the IIS Manager snap-in.
  2. Expand the "Sites" folder.
  3. Click on "Default Web Site" (or however it is named).
  4. Right-click and select "Edit Bindings".

There should not be more than one entry in this dialog for the same port. Please refer to QAID 13361 for configuring for Windows Server 2003/IIS 6
