Element Description
<binding> Defines all binding capabilities of the custom binding.


This element allows you to enable or disable incoming transaction flow in an endpoint’s binding settings, as well as to specify the desired protocol format for incoming transactions. For more information on using this configuration element, see ServiceModel Transaction Configuration and Enabling Transaction Flow.


When using the OleTransactions protocol to flow transactions from endpoint to endpoint, the transaction timeout can be lost if the destination endpoint attempts to flow again using any protocol other than OleTransactions. This can cause all down-level nodes after the OleTransactions hop to timeout later than expected.
