soapUI .NET 2.0 Artifact

My task is to consume a service with a WCF in .NET that has been written in java. The people that wrote the service directed me to soapUI. We have established a test where I can connect to the service when I load the soapUI project. The problem is that i cannot connect to it if I use the proxy that I created in .NET by using the wsdl and schema information. I am now trying to use the .NET 2.0 Artifact option in soapUI but I cannot get to the service. The service is protected by usernametoken. The only difference I can see is that the regular service call has this information but I do not see a place for it when using the .NET 2.0 Artifact option.

Please help if you can.

    1 Getting the WSDL

    if the WSDL is 'protected by username token', then best to use Postmans or CURL to create a request and download the WSDL file to a local folder. Then refer to that folder as the location of the WSDL not an internet URL.


    2 Proxy

    Refer to Stackoverflow to sort out WCF clients and Proxy settings.


    3 Creating the client from SoapUI

    says "specify the directory containing wsdl.exe in the SoapUI Tool Integrations settings" but does't explain how

    Hint: Click on the "Tools" button in: 

    Mine was in:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v10.0A\bin\NETFX 4.7.2 Tools\x64\


    One hint: don't use sharetypes with the SoapUi wizard.


    Final hint: don't use SmartBear, use Visual Studio to generate the Client.
