    What is the server name secret for connecting FM12 and SharePoint 10?

    KateColours

      All attempts to connect FM12 and SharePoint 10 result in this message: "The request failed with HTTP status 404: Not Found."

       

      In FM12, I opened Connection Manager, selected SharePoint, and entered:

      • connection name
      • server and site address
      • user name
      • password

       

      The SharePoint site displays successfully when I enter the server and site address in a browser, but SharePoint and FM aren't talking to each other for some reason.

       

      I tried entering all possible versions of "server and site address" in the FM Connection Manager with no success.

      http://servername/sites/xyzzy

      http://servername/sites/

      http://servername/sites

      http://servername/

      http://servername

       

      I added the port number at the end of the server name as suggested in the tip below the server field "(e.g. http://server:port)" and got a "status 400: Bad Request" message.

       

      What's the secret to getting past this step?

       

      Thank you very much for your help.  I would love to get on with the rest of the process!
