This post suggests data.stackexchange.com endpoint to connect using OData from Linqpad.

http://data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/atom gives Server Error in '/' Application.. This seems security flaw, A nice Error Page (like that comes in Stackoverflow.com) would be great, but that is another issue.

In the linqpad, error message is "500 Internal Server Error".

My question is What is the correct URL to connect through OData protocol?

    How is an error page a security flaw? – balpha Jan 11 '13 at 11:12
  • OK, it is not flaw.Appropriate Settings are configured (and stacktrace is visible only to local server machines and NOT to remote machines).But Custom error page like this is better. – Tilak Jan 11 '13 at 15:33

    Yeah, I agree it's not pretty; it's just not a security issue. And even a stack trace wouldn't be; after all the data explorer is open source. – balpha Jan 11 '13 at 17:26

    can you tell me the reason why its not working, is it down, or there is some other URL? – Tilak Jan 11 '13 at 17:39
  • I don't know, the data explorer isn't exactly my area of expertise. – balpha Jan 11 '13 at 17:40

When fixing the odata.stackexchange.com to data.stackexchange.com redirect issue (they're the same site in IIS) it broke the odata bindings because the service model (by default) is unhappy with multiple bindings per site on the same protocol.

I've made the appropriate adjustments and it's back up and running.

  • Yes, not it is working. It may be wrong to ask, but can you elaborate the underlying issue that caused "multiple bindings per site on same protocol" to fail – Tilak Jan 12 '13 at 13:00
  • @Tilak - yeah sure, here's the relevant article: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee358763.aspx – Nick Craver Jan 12 '13 at 13:50
  • This still does not work for me. I am getting a 404-Not Found error. I am using Linqpad in this case. – user237367 Oct 20 '13 at 20:04
  • still has a 404 - Not Found error – John Babb Dec 7 '14 at 12:24
  • @JohnBabb it redirects fine here - what IP are you seeing for that address? – Nick Craver Dec 7 '14 at 13:23
