  • This sounds like a proxy issue with your environment, and not a HealthVault issue.  Check your proxy information and make sure you have things configured correctly.

    To assist, I'd recommend using an HTTP tracing tool like Fiddler: http://www.fiddler2.com/fiddler2/

    Make sure you follow the steps to decrypt HTTPS traffic, or it won't be of much help... all the interesting HealthVault traffic is over HTTPS: http://www.fiddler2.com/Fiddler/help/httpsdecryption.asp

    This will help you determine exactly which request throws the error, as there are many redirects, and sometimes it can seem like the HealthVault server is returning an error when in fact the external environment or application is the source of the issue.
