VC does not connect to Portal



I'm using VC 6.0 Patch 2 on Windows 2003 Server with IIS 6.0.

My problem is this:

When I launch VC and Select Data Services it tells me "Not connected to a Portal Server".

I notice a combo box in the top right labelled Portal with a stoplight next to it. I enter in http://<portalservername>:<serverport> and a popup browser with my portal Welcome screen appears. I enter in what I think is a userid that exists in the R/3 backend system and which I believe is mapped in the Portal, however, after I press enter, the browser flickers and shows me the Welcome screen again.

If I close the browser, it pops up the same "Not connected to a Portal Server" message.

Does my user need a certain role or permission to allow for this connectivity? (Currently I have assigned all roles to this user.)

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
