HTTP Connection to External Serv in PI test connection error


Third party has provided the URL, to get their Web Services.

I tested this URL using soapsonar tool, by doing the below technical settings:

1.No proxy

2.Basic authentication given

When i execute this, able to retrieve the data from the Non-SAP.

The same thing i'm trying from PI 7.3:

I have created RFC destination connection type G (HTTP Connection to External Serv) in PI 7.3 to connect testing to a Non-SAP(Web Service) system.

I have filled the Host name & path prefix entries from the URL.

1.No proxy

2.Provided basic authentication

& when i do the connection test, getting the below err result:

Test Result Tab:

Detail Value

Status HTTP Response 401

Status Text Unauthorized

Response Body Tab:

Server Error

401 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials.

You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

Response Header Fields Tab:

~server_protocol HTTP/1.1

~status_code 401

~status_reason Unauthorized

content-type text/html

server Microsoft-IIS/7.5

www-authenticate Negotiate

www-authenticate NTLM

x-powered-by ASP.NET

date Sat, 20 Aug 2011 08:23:55 GMT

connection close

content-length 1293


~uri_scheme_expanded NONE

It is working from soapsonar but not from PI. Please help in resolving this issue.

    401 is a credential issue. Re-check the username/password that you are supplying. If that does not work, try using the URL Path in the Plain HTTP Adapter (not the HTTP Destination).

    Hope this helps,
