External Access and WCF Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Getting a "Cannot Communicate with Server Error"... when loading Project Center from an externally accessed site.

    When debugging, it appears that communications are failing when the WCF service attempts to reauthenticate the user.

    It fails at this point:

    /pwa/_vti_bin/PSI/ProjectServer.svc&AuthResend<GUID>

    Any ideas?  Firewall problem?

  • Hello Joe

    Are you using AAM?  Did you put a hosted header in AAM?   If you did, be sure to add the hosted header to IIS.

    Firewall is another good place to look.

  • What authentication method is used? What kind of firewalls are in the path (ISA/TMG)? Maybe the service is listening on a port that is not accesible from the external site?

    I guess we need a bit more info to solve this one ;)
