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