We can reword the Peer Network Address section to read: Peer Network Address Peer network addresses use net.p2p for transport, to indicate the use of the Windows peer network transport. When not using a resolver, you must specify the peer network name as well as a unique path and port. Using and configuring peer networks is beyond the scope of this book, and you will see very little mention of peer networks in subsequent chapters.

In example 4-11, when the overrideConfig argument is true and a

throttling behaviour is already present, the existing behaviour will be removed but not replaced (because the null reference condition will not be satisfied). Here is the correct code: public void SetThrottle(ServiceThrottlingBehavior serviceThrottle, bool overrideConfig) { if(State == CommunicationState.Opened) { throw new InvalidOperationException("Host is already opened"); } ServiceThrottlingBehavior throttle = Description.Behaviors.Find<ServiceThrottlingBehavior>(); if(throttle == null) { Description.Behaviors.Add(serviceThrottle); return; } if(overrideConfig == false) { return; } Description.Behaviors.Remove(throttle); Description.Behaviors.Add(serviceThrottle); }

The paragraph reads: It is very imporant when using TransactionScopeRequired is set to true to avoid catching and handling exceptions and explicitly voiding to abort. Shouldn't this read: It is very imporant when using TransactionAutoComplete is set to true to avoid catching and handling exceptions and explicitly voiding to abort.
