WCF MaxReceivedMessageSize: maximum message size quota exceeded

wcf

I am getting this error:

The maximum message size quota for incoming messages (65536) has been
exceeded. To increase the quota, use the MaxReceivedMessageSize
property on the appropriate binding element.

How can I increase this value in the WCF client application or the server application, and if possible an example of how this is done?

Best Solution

You increase it on the client side in app/web.config:

<system.serviceModel>
    <bindings>
        <basicHttpBinding>
            <binding name="WSBigQuotaConfig" closeTimeout="00:01:00" openTimeout="00:01:00" receiveTimeout="00:10:00" sendTimeout="00:01:00" allowCookies="false" bypassProxyOnLocal="false" hostNameComparisonMode="StrongWildcard" maxBufferSize="2097152" maxBufferPoolSize="524288" maxReceivedMessageSize="2097152" messageEncoding="Text" textEncoding="utf-8" transferMode="Buffered" useDefaultWebProxy="true">
                <readerQuotas maxDepth="32" maxStringContentLength="2097152" maxArrayLength="2097152" maxBytesPerRead="4096" maxNameTableCharCount="16384"/>
                <security mode="None">
                    <transport clientCredentialType="None" proxyCredentialType="None" realm=""/>
                    <message clientCredentialType="UserName" algorithmSuite="Default"/>
                </security>
            </binding>
      </basicHttpBinding>
  </bindings>

  <client>
      <endpoint 
          address="http://example.com/endpoint.svc"
          binding="basicHttpBinding"
          bindingConfiguration="WSBigQuotaConfig"
          contract="ISomeServiceContract" />
  </client>
</system.serviceModel>
