MindTouch export using UWC

I am having an issue exporting the data from our current MindTouch environment and have tried multiple settings, but always receiving the following error:

2013-10-17 18:32:06,034 INFO [Thread-10] - Exporting Mindtouch...

2013-10-17 18:32:06,036 INFO [Thread-10] - Getting page tree.

Config file is set to:

# Exporter class - class that controls the export. Don't change this.


###### SET THESE ######

## Base Url of your Mindtouch

## could be:, http://localhost, https://someplace.com, etc


## Port used by your Mindtouch. Default is 80.


## Login Credentials for your Mindtouch. Should be an admin.



## Output Dir - where the exported files are put


###### OPTIONAL ######

## user agent for the Xml Parser. Default is Universal Wiki Converter

user-agent=Universal Wiki Converter

## buffer size in bytes for downloading attachments. Default is 1024


## connection timeout in ms. Default is 10000


## if true, ignore page with name MindTouch. Default is true


• When browsing the the @api link in the log I am presented with a login prompt and the convert/convert username takes me to the XML page correctly.

• In IIS I have tried

  • Adding Basic Authentication to the IIS role
  • Removing all Authentications other than Basic

• Have created a local username in windows on the server with the same credentials

• Have tried a local user with admin as well as a domain account with admin

• User in Mindtouch has admin in the MindTouch application

• Have removed all authentication methods of MindTouch other than the local normal authentication

• Have tried to just import the MindTouch export of the Wiki, which when imported created a huge mess in Confluence so this is not a workaround

Currently in an evalutation of Confluence and this feature of pulling the MindTouch information over is critical to being able to use Confluence.

Any suggestions on how to get this working would be greatly appreciated. Running Server 2008 R2 with IIS7

Redownload the app and never put anything into the attachments entry and it works. Just clearing it out did not.

Guess its as suspected and the common issue of Basic Auth is not solved. On to the next product evaluation.
