    I am trying to create a WCF Service which communicates to a C++ client through named pipes.  I have run into some problems and have a few questions. 

    1.       What are the benefits of using WCF over using PInvoke of the Named Pipes APIs?

    2.       How do you access a named pipe endpoint from a native C++ app that is created using WCF?

    3.       Is there a simple way to create a native C++ proxy from a WCF service?  Using the svcutil to generate the proxy in c++ create a c++/cli file.

    Any resources or sample code relating to implementing this idea would be greatly appreciated.
