PRB: "Unable to Complete Transaction" Error Connecting with Visual InterDev

Article ID: 249593

Article Last Modified on 10/15/2002



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Visual InterDev 6.0 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q249593

SYMPTOMS

When attempting to open an existing project with Visual InterDev 6.0, the following error occurs:

Unable to open Web project 'ProjectName'. Unable to complete transaction - the server requested authentication information (userid/password) using an authentication scheme (negotiate) that is unsupported by FrontPage.

When attempting to create a new project with Visual InterDev 6.0, the following error occurs:

Unable to complete transaction - the server requested authentication information (userid/password) using an authentication scheme (negotiate) that is unsupported by FrontPage.

CAUSE

Visual InterDev 6.0 uses the FrontPage 98 client libraries to connect to the server and manage projects. These libraries do not properly parse the system proxy information (specifically, the Bypass proxy server for local addresses setting and the exception list). As a result, the proxy is used even for local (intranet) addresses, and authentication failures may occur.

RESOLUTION

When developing against servers that are all on the same network, clear the Use system settings checkbox in Visual InterDev 6.0. To do this, select Options from the Tools menu, and select Projects and Web Proxy Settings. Also remove any entries in the HTTP Proxy textbox.

If you are also developing against servers through a proxy server, then enter the proxy server's name in the HTTP Proxy text box, and select the Do not use proxy server for local (intranet) addresses checkbox. Information entered directly into this dialog box is used correctly by Visual InterDev.
