WLW: Cannot connect RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I write my Windows Live ID and Pass in the WLW and click Next I get the following:

    An unexpected error occured while trying to log in to the remote server. If you have a proxy or firewall configured, please make sure your system is properly configured to allow this program to connect to the remote server.

    I tryed disabling my ESET Firewall, even turned the whole smart security off but the problem persists. What should I do?

  • That's an interesting issue...


    This is an OLD forum for Windows Live Writer; Microsoft will be shutting it down soon [to be read only]... But there's a NEW forum, with more activity and more Microsoft techs working it. I suggest you go there and resubmit your inquiry there...

    Here's the URL:



    If you're having problems with Windows Live Writer and logging in to LIVE SPACES - attempt this:

    Log in/create a LIVE SPACES [home.spaces.live.com] account manually.
    Test it by logging out and in to the site, manually.

    Now go to Windows Live Writer, add blog account, choose LIVE SPACES and then enter the same credentials you used on the website.

    Hopefully, this will resolve your issue.


    cya in the NEW forum.

    I hope you have a nice day

    Until next time,
