    "Failed to connect chat service: The remote server returned an error (401) unauthorized."

    I just installed the Live Support component, and I am having trouble with logging into the Live Support Operator.  I just executed the script to create the database.  I entered the default credentials (admin / admin) to login and I am getting an exception that says "Failed to connect chat service: The remote server returned an error (401) unauthorized."  I have set the sample project as the default home directory in my IIS, so my website url should just simply point to http://localhost.  What am I doing wrong?  Please help.

    Hey everyone, I got this resolved.
     
    I had integrated windows authentication turned on in IIS and anonymous access turned off.  I had to uncheck integrated windows authentication and check anonymous access.
     
    I hope this helps for some people.

    Re: "Failed to connect chat service: The remote server returned an error (401) unauthorized."

    When you initially open the program you will see the screen below:



  • Web service Url: The Url of your website.

    You can set default value of Web service Url by editng LiveSupport.exe.config file.

    <add key="CuteChatServiceUrlBase" value="http://yoursite.com"/>

    If the Web service Url you entered doesn't match the exact location of  CuteSoft_client folder, you will get this error.
     
    For example, if your site name is abc.com and you upload CuteSoft_client folder to the root of your web site, the value of Web service Url should be: http://abc.com.
     
    Hope it helps.
     
    It not, please let me know your configuration.
