Error signing in to Live Writer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Today I installed Windows Live Messenger, Photo Gallery and Writer on to my computer. Messenger and Photo Gallery work fine with my Windows Live ID and password.

    However, when trying to log in to Writer, I get the following message:

    "An unexpected error occurred 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 connect to the remote server."

    I've checked through the various questions and answers but can't seem to find one that mirrors my situation.

    I use Firefox as my browser and Microsoft Security Essentials.

    Thanks in anticipation.
