While publishing an application from Visual Studio to Azure App Service, you may come across this error message:


Web Deploy experienced a connection problem with the server and had to terminate the connection.

In the case I worked on, the project publishes successfully to Local IIS and Azure Functions but not to Azure App Service.



Follow the steps below to find a solution to this issue:

  • Uninstall security software in the server and try again
  • Make sure Management Services are installed (Add Role and Features > Web Server)
  • Check if Web Management Services and Web Deploy Agent Service are running
  • Make sure Fiddler or any other similar software is not running during the publish
  • Check if TCP port 8172 are open
