Any news on this?

It's there.  I'll have the admin double check the permissions again.  Seems like something doesn't have execute permissions.

Yes, that's exactly correct.  Check to be sure the Permissions.asmx file is present, and that the service is enabled.Karl

Hi Karl,
I added some debug to print the actual axis error in the sharepoint connector.  I'm getting error 1000.  Looking at MCPermissions.cs I see that it is what is raising this error, in the code below:
                // Only handle requests for "item".  Send all other requests to the SharePoint web service.
                if (objectType.Equals(itemType))
                    retVal = GetItemPermissions(objectName);
                    ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback +=
                        new RemoteCertificateValidationCallback(ValidateCertificate);

                    using (SPPermissionsService.Permissions service = new SPPermissionsService.Permissions())
                        service.Url = SPContext.Current.Web.Url + "/_vti_bin/Permissions.asmx";
                        service.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;

                        retVal = service.GetPermissionCollection(objectName, objectType);
            catch (SoapException soapEx)
                throw soapEx;
            catch (Exception ex)
                EventLog.WriteEntry("MCPermissions.asmx", ex.Message);
                throw RaiseException(ex.Message, "1000", ex.Source);
Now, the error is still a 401 unauthorized, but since it's inside MCPermissions.asmx it's clearly not an issue with accessing the webpart remotely.
I assume since someone wrote that 1000 for a reason that this is not an unknown issue.  Any ideas what my issue may be?  Seems like maybe this is an issue accessing /_vti_bin/Permissions.asmx from within MCPermissions.asmx?

Usually the only thing you have to be careful of with the plugin is to install it when logged in as an administrator.  The plugin gets the privs it needs from the installation user.If you've done that already, then you also have to open up the IIS widget in Windows and grant .NET execute privs to the _vti_bin directory.  There's a whole lot of security configuration for IIS that I am not an expert with either, but the idea is to make sure all the .asmx assemblies under _vti_bin can be executed by a remote user.(And yes, Windows security is, in general, a complete pain in the behind.)Hope that helps.Karl

Ok thanks, installed.  Seeing these two issues now, wondering if y'all have seen these.  I'm not a Sharepoint expert, but seems it's security is, um, difficult:
1. Alternate access mappings have not been configured. Users or services are accessing the site http://amazona-2h120gm with the URL This may cause incorrect links to be stored or returned to users. If this is expected, add the URL as an AAM response URL. For more information, see:"/>
Not sure this is actually causing any issues right now, but if you've seen this let me know.
The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized.
My admin just ran the script for installing mcpermissions.asmx.  But it seems like there is an extra step to grant users access?

IIS uses NTLM or Kerberos typically.  You want to configure it to use NTLM.In 1.1 and 1.1.1 there was a problem with the NTLM implementation inHttpClient, having to do with machines either not joined to domains orjoined to child domains.  If you think you may have that problem, youcan download a version of httpclient that works properly from .  It's version 4.2.4-SNAPSHOT.KarlOn Fri, Feb 22, 2013 at 1:36 PM, Mark Lugert <> wrote:> Ok will try.  This server has other web apps installed as well.  There is> clearly a conflict or or something going on with the classpath.>> Another question though.  The Sharepoint connector uses what to> authenticate?  Seems like it would use NTLM by default as I don't see> anywhere basic auth being set.>> The docs kind of gloss over that part, but I'm getting>> Got an unknown remote exception accessing site - axis fault = Client, detail> = The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized.>> using the exact same credentials I use to login via the browser.  Checking> security log and stuff, but seems like this should be documented better.>> thanks,> mark>
