When you click "Connect" in the publishing dialog XLCubed will try to contact your web server.

If this fails an administrator can check the following to try to resolve the problem.


Windows Authentication

IIS Settings

Depending on your IIS version, take the following steps:

IIS 5

Right click the XLCubedWeb directory and select "Properties" Select the "Directory Security" tab Ensure that "Integrated Windows authentication" is checked and all others are not.

If you do not have these options you must add them from Control Panel -> Programs -> Turn Windows features on or off


web.config Settings

In the bindings section the security should be as follows for each binding.

   <security mode="TransportCredentialOnly">
       <transport clientCredentialType="Windows"/>
   </security>


Basic Authentication

IIS Settings

Depending on your IIS version, take the following steps:
