we have a user requirement where users want to share files with third party using sharepoint. We have a extranet sp site set up. Users will be doing send to connections from internal SP site to extranet (Record centre) for file sharing purposes.

I have configured sent to connection using central administration on internal SP site. Central Admin –> General Application Settings –> Configure send to connections and add a new connection.


When i select a file for send to connection i get error message saying "Extranet site can not be found or accessed"/ "The Extranet site is not properly configured for this request"

another error recived in ULS logs OfficialFile::SubmitFile: Encountered WebException when sending file Site A to SiteB /_vti_bin/OfficialFile.asmx: The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized.

Event id: 7022

Any help would be appreciated.

Similar question answered on following:
I am Facing problem with "Send to connection" in SharePoint Server 2010.

If the above doesn't works for you, then try this:
Defining a "Send To" between two sub-sites within a site collection

I found the article written by Steven Andrews on
SharePoint: Common problems when creating a new "Send To" location

I hope this helps...

Thanks for your response. I have followed the steps as mentioned in the link you specified but no joy. I've checked ULS logs and i am getting "The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized". Do you think i may have to pass the authentication details somewhere? – nishtha Nov 12 '12 at 9:25

Thanks again. I have also seen below error: System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: Updates are currently disallowed on GET requests. To allow updates on a GET, set the 'AllowUnsafeUpdates' property on SPWeb. at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequestInternalClass.ValidateFormDigest(String bstrUrl, String bstrListName) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequest.ValidateFormDigest(String bstrUrl, String bstrListName) – nishtha Nov 12 '12 at 9:52
Nishtha, that is weird..! don't know about this - sorry! – Arsalan Adam Khatri Nov 12 '12 at 14:57
I have started using manage copies rather than send to connection since its working without any issues. – nishtha Nov 13 '12 at 16:19

Just Add application pool account your internal SP site run from to the Web Service Submitters group of extranet (Record centre).
