I cant connect to WMS services on AutoCAD map 3D, getting this message:
Faild to connect.
Faild to open FDO connection.
Couldnt resolve Proxy name
Works out fine in ArcGIS and other mapping software in the office.
Anybody knows wich port AutoCAD is using for WMS-services?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Solved! by NateMoore. See the answer in context.
Ive tried about 5 different.
It feels like it is some kind of port/firewall issue
From your Get Capabilities request when posted in a web browser (remove quotes)
I used the Online Resource link found in the returned xml document (remove quotes)
as the connection string in AutoCAD Map 3D-2012 and WMS Version 1.1.1.
This gave me the connection to the WMS server and the list of layers to choose from.
Yup! I can make it work outside of our network aswell.
But the question was wich port AutoCAD is using for WMS:-)
I guess I don't have a clue on that. I just assumed it was some basic port like 80 or 8080. We have a pretty tight firewall to go through and have not had any issues with Map or ArcGIS. Sorry I could not help.
I am having an almost identical issue with AutoCAD Map 3D 2012 [Failed to connect; Failed to open FDO connection; Unable to connect to host]
My IT folks are stumped at the present moment. What exactly did you do to correct the issue? Any/all infomation you have to offer is very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
1) Can you try with a MAP 2013 or MAP 2014 ?
2) A lot of problems can come from proxy Server !?
3) Problems can come from login/password when you have a mix of layers : some unprotected, some protected by login/password !?
