Subject Re: Sharepoint connector - authentication failure

Hi Karl,

I turned on wire logging, and uploaded a the resulting log here: .  That's the output of adding a new
SharePoint 2003 Repository connection.  Things seem normal until the
401 is returned for the GetListsCollection call (but I'm a SOAP &
Sharepoint neophyte).  Changing it to SP 2010 results in the same

Using Chrome/FireFox/Safari, the following urls all work using the
credentials the connector is using:

If I use soapUI and make the GetListCollection SOAP request using the
same credentials, I get a successful response, uploaded here:

Any chance you could take a look at the log and let me know if I'm
missing something obvious?
