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 Publish Page, Project Designer.

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.
