Unable to connect to IDES System


Hi All,

I have just started exploring VC. I am trying to create an application : SalesOrder.

The tutorial is asking the foll:

From the System drop-down list, choose the IDES system defined in the portal (the source of the data we need), such asIDES_R3

Can someone tell me if IDES is a different system than SAP R/3. I have created a few R/3 systems in Portal. But when I select their alias name (eg. aliasSAPR_3) and look for "Service by name" and give the service name as BAPI_SALESORDER then I get the foll. message

"Search Returned an error. Failed to connect to backend system. Check your system definition and user privileges."

Plz help
