Atlassian Connector 1.3.10 & VS2010: HTTP error "(417) expectation failed"


I'm unable to add our JIRA server into the VS integration (Atlassian Connector, just downloaded) with the abovementioned error. I can reach JIRA without problems using the same address via the browser, and I double-checked my credentials.

The error details:

Failed to connect to server "GEBIT JIRA"

What further information can I provide to enable you analyzing the issue?

Thanks, cheers,

(by the way, I noticed that in the error details the username and password (!) are shown in plain text several times - you may want to change that asap! I removed my credentials in the above pasted snippet.)

twimc, I updated to the latest snapshot version of the connector, but the problem persists. I also tried to access the REST-url directly in my browser (on the same machine as VS2010), and it successfully returns JSON data. So there must be some problem in the connector itself.

I worked around the problem by specifying another URL pointing to the same JIRA instance; must've been a problem with our reverse proxy or something. Never mind the noise...
