My customer's installation of PPM 8.0 is attempting to utilize the MS Project Plugin integration. Despite being able to successfully install the plugin, when connecting from MS Project to PPM - it is not recognizing the server and continually asking for the server name and port#. The PPM log states that there is a java connection probelm. I've tried to reboot and connect again with no success. Anyone out there have any ideas that may help?
If the plugin asks you continuously for PPM address and port, it means that it cannot connect successfully to PPM Server.
What address are you inputing exactly when prompted to input PPM Server address and port?
The plugin of PPM 8.0 is using Internet Explorer internet settings to connect to PPM, so can you use Internet Explorer of the workstation on which the plugin is installed to access PPM Web Site without any problem?
One way to pinpoint the root cause of the problem would be to monitor internet traffic between the plugin and PPM server. You can use a monitoring software like Fiddler (http://www.fiddler2.com/fiddler2/version.asp) to monitor all the data exchanges occurring between the plugin and the PPM Server. The reason why the plugin cannot connect to the PPM Server would be obvious in the Fiddler traces.
