  • yes, it looks like something is blocking access to the end point, have you recently changed settings on your server?

  • I have the same problem, but the bottom line is different:

    "Found: Found"

    The SharePoint site uses Forms Based Authentication (FBA).
    If I change it to Windows Integrated or Anonymous, then it works well, but FBA is required.

    I can check the http://........../_layouts/metaweblog.aspx in browser, it displays "The metaweblog.aspx page is used by SharePoint compatible blogging applications" - so the page is reachable.

    What can be the problem?
