  // Create a client object with the given client endpoint configuration.

    Console.ReadLine();
    client.Abort();
  }

  {
    Console.WriteLine("There was a communication problem. " + commProblem.Message + commProblem.StackTrace);
    Console.ReadLine();
    client.Abort();
  }
' Create a client object with the given client endpoint configuration.
  Dim client As New CalculatorClient()
 Try
	client.ClientCredentials.Windows.AllowedImpersonationLevel = TokenImpersonationLevel.Impersonation
Catch timeProblem As TimeoutException
  Console.WriteLine("The service operation timed out. " & timeProblem.Message)
  Console.ReadLine()
  client.Abort()
Catch commProblem As CommunicationException
  Console.WriteLine("There was a communication problem. " & commProblem.Message + commProblem.StackTrace)
  Console.ReadLine()

Remarks

You can use the object returned by this property to configure the Windows credential by calling its members, such as AllowNtlm and AllowedImpersonationLevel.

These settings control the Windows credential used during SPNEGO negotiation at either the message or transport level or the properties of Kerberos tokens used for authentication at the message level.
