About Service Endpoints

A service endpoint is the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) location of an Enterprise Server for .NET component running as a service. The default configuration is a port on the local machine, that is, all components operating on a single machine.

Key WCF service interactions an installation uses include:

Note: The listener always sends its WCF service location to the dispatcher, so you do not have to configure the listener's endpoint for the dispatcher.

For a system operating on a cluster, service endpoints are defined as URLs. The URL defines the endpoint's protocol, hostname, port, and path.
