When I try to deploy my SharePoint masterpage using Visual Studio I get the following error:

  “The communication object, System.ServiceModel.Channels.ServiceChannel, cannot be used for communication because it is in the Faulted state”

I can imagine that this is not enough information for you to solve my issue, but I dont know what kind of info you need. So feel free to comment and I will provide what you need.
