WMS Connection in Map 3D 2012

Hello,

 

I'm trying something I believe to be fairly basic:  I'm trying to get some basemapping into my Map 3D drawing.

In particular, I need to get the World Street Map found here:  http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=3b93337983e9436f8db950e38a8629af

 

In Map, under Data Connections, I'm using "Add WMS Connection"

I give the connection a name, enter the Server name, and leave Version on "Default version"

 

I leave username and password blank.

 

But I always get the error message:  "Failed to connect."

 

Any ideas?  Do ESRI and AutoCAD just not play well together?

This basemap is not a "WMS service". So you can not add it with an FDO WMS conection.

 

This basemap is an "ArcGIS image service".

I don't understand all that FDO connection stuff.  A smart guy at CADSoft pointed me to Basejump, which is awesome, just what I needed.
