SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Does anybody know if it's possible to connect a SharePoint 2013 farm to an Office Web Apps farm that's on a separate domain?

I tried to set it up using the steps documented in http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff431687.aspx, and did not get any error message from PowerShell. But when I actually go to open a document in the browser, I get the following message:

"Sorry, there was a problem and we can't open this document. If this happens again, try opening the document in Microsoft Word."

I also see the following correlated exceptions in the ULS:

System.ServiceModel.ServiceActivationException: The requested service, 'net.pipe://localhost/SecurityTokenServiceApplication/appsts.svc' could not be activated.

WOPIFrame - Unhandled exception: System.ServiceModel.ServiceActivationException: The requested service, 'net.pipe://localhost/SecurityTokenServiceApplication/appsts.svc' could not be activated.
