Trying to do integration between TFS and SharePoint, but running into some issues.

Followed instruction as below, with a small difference, TFS 2012 is sitting on one server, SharePoint 2013 is on a different server: http://blog.hinshelwood.com/integrate-sharepoint-2013-with-team-foundation-server-2012/

But when trying to add SharePoint Web Applications in TFS, TF255329 error popped up as below:

TF255329: The following site could not be accessed: http://servername. The server that you specified did not return the expected response. Either you have not installed the Team Foundation Server Extensions for SharePoint Products on this server, or a firewall is blocking access to the specified site or the SharePoint Central Administration site. For more information, see the Microsoft Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=161206)

Is there any setups need to done in SharePoint?
