I wanted to develop solutions for Sharepoint 2013. I have visual studio 2013 installed on a windows 7 machine and Share point 2013 installed on Win 2008 R2 server. Both systems in the same LAN. I am able to access sharepoint through browser like so
Since I could not install share point 2013 on my Win 7 machine I tried for remote development. I have searched on Google and found this SO Post. I have configured according to the post and now I can create Apps for Share point.
When I try to create a Share Point Project (Empty Project for example) in Visual Studio 2013 it pops up the dialog asking for the site. I entered
http://sp-production/sites/IT and clicked on validate. This has thrown an error
I searched for a solution to this and came across various posts that said editing the hosts file and adding a lien there with the IP address of the Sharepoint Server and the Sharepoint server name and hence I have added
I have also tried to add my own PC IP tot he hosts file but given the name of the sharepoint server but the error still persists.
But still I get the same error that is depicted in the screen shot above.
Kindly advice on resolving this.
Note: My Sharepoint is a fresh installation without any sort of customisation (connected to Active Directory) and I am the only user on Sharepoint currently with site administrator privileges on the specified URL
