First you have two endpoints with blank address and two endpoints with mex address but these endpoints don't have same binding. You have to define different addresses for those endpoints. For your security binding specify only Transport mode unless you want to authenticate user. For service metadata replace two occurences of serviceMetadata with single element containing both attributes.

Why do you use 10 hours timeouts?
