SAP Web AS Connection test error from EP to BW



I am getting a connection test error for BW system created in NW04s EP 7.

I am in the process of integrating BW with EP as per the SAP documention.

As per the documentation I have created BW system and alias in EP and export / import

of certification in EP & BW is done. BW profile parameters also adjusted for single sign on.

The web as ping service is active and am able to pint manualy.

Please provide me some idea on this issue.
