Failed to connect to '<server>' with the following error: '<error>'
This topic has been updated for Visual Studio 2005 SP1.
This error occurs when the publish process failed to connect to a server or failed to establish a Web connection specified by one of the URLs on the Publish page of the Project Designer. For more information, see.
To correct this error
Verify that the URLs you entered on the Publish page of the Project Designer are valid.
If the trailing error message is: "Unable to create the Web '<url>'. The Web server does not appear to have the FrontPage server extensions installed," you have to turn on the Windows feature IIS Metabase and IIS 6 configuration compatibility. You also have to be logged on as an Administrator; otherwise you will be unable to run setup.exe to install the project.
