Error Connecting to Search Service

Feb 18, 2010 at 6:07 PM

I have downloaded the tool, and I am running it from the MOSS2007 App server running the Search Service. After selecting "File" and selecting "Connecting to SharePoint Search Service" and typing "http://mossservername:port#/_vti_bin/search.asmx" in the Server Url field and selecting "MOSS" as the Server Type, I get the following error.

An error occurred: Client found response content type of ", but expected 'text/xml'.

The request failed with an empty response.

I can type the Url in a browser on the server and get to the "Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Query Web Service" page.

Any ideas as to what I might have wrong? Maybe my path isn't quite right?

I have connected by using "http://servername:port#/_vti_bin/search.asmx?"

It just looks like the "?" at the end of the Url path was all I need. I am not sure why this is the case, but at least I can connect.
