Unable to create new recieve data connection with sharepoint list RRS feed

  • Question

  • General info: Using Infopath Designer 2007, and Sharepoint Server 2007, on an Windows XP S3 Machine.

    I'm attempting to create a new infopath form, of which some of the fields will be populated with data from a sharepoint list. When I use the Data Connection Wizard to create the new receive data connection, however, the following error is returned:

    "The SOAP response indicates that an error occurred on the server:
    Exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException' was thrown.
    <detail><errorstring xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/">The Web application at "..." could not be found. Verify that you have typed the URL correctly. If the URL should be serving existing content, the system administrator may need to add a new request URL mapping to the intended application.</errorstring></detail>"

    I am working from a separate domain as the server, and perhaps the fix is as simple as typing the URL correctly. The above error occurs when I access the site via http://... If I try to connect as though it were a location on the network \\..., The error returned is merely "Access denied. Contact your administrator". Either way, the sharepoint server isn't prompting for my account, as I would expect, but I've found nothing to prove that it should be; only the lack of access. If it is just that authorization, how do I convince the server to prompt me for the passcode, rather than just denying access for working at home?

    Thanks so much.

  • Can you try it from the same domain?  What kind of domain trust is there between your domain and the SharePoint domain?  Just so you know, I build forms for clients from home all the time without being on their domain.  For some, I VPN on to their system and do it.  For others, I do it straight from my home network with a simple Windows prompt.  Once I'm authenticated, I don't get prompted again as long as I have the site in my Local Intranet zone of IE.  I also have one client farm that I built where there is a one-way trust between forests, and I'm able to build forms for sites on the external forest from both the internal forest and from my home after logging in through ISA across the Internet.

    So, those examples show that it is possible to work in this scenario as long as it is all configured properly.  In your case, does the web application you're working within have a site collection at the root?  In other words, if you're working on a site at http://domainURL/sites/SiteURL, then is there a root site collection built at http://domainURL?

  • Sorry for the delay, Clayton, and thanks for your help.

     

    The trouble has largely been that I don't have the ability to try it from the same domain, and my employer's IT hasn't been able to do the necessary testing for me. We're looking to migrate the sharepoint to my company's server space, though, which should help clear up the problem.

    And there is a root site at http://domainURL, but I don't have access to that root.

    As we're now looking at moving space all together, hopefully I won't need this resolved. But thank you for your help!

  • Please close out the thread, though, before you go (however you see fit to do so).
