i would really appreciate if someone could give me a step by step breakdown on how to solve it


Error generating an asymmetric key.
The communication object, System.ServiceModel.Channels.ServiceChannel, cannot be used for communication because it is in the Faulted state.

Re: enterprise data gateway configuration error

i've tried some of the solutions i got from the forums.

 when i set my log on to this "NT SERVICE\PBIEgwService" i get a temp user error but when i change to local system account, i get the above error.


Note: the server i'm trying to configure the gateway on is not on a domain


please for any solution i get, can i have a step by step walk through

Re: enterprise data gateway configuration error



The gateway creates an outbound connection to Azure Service Bus. It communicates on outbound ports: TCP 443 (default), 5671, 5672, 9350 thru 9354. Please try to open outbound rule for those ports on your server which you want to configure data gateway.
