Why am I getting an error when trying to validate an address with the Rest API?


When trying to validate an address using the Rest API, you are receiving the following error: 

{"ResultCode": "Error","Messages": [{"Summary": "SOAP operation [http:\/\/<>\/services\/Validate] failed with an HTTP status of [7-ProtocolError] against http:\/\/localhost:8084\/Address\/AddressSvc.asmx","Severity": "Error","Source": "Avalara.Web.REST"}]}
