Dynamics GP Connection Options

Server Address

Enter your Dynamics GP server address here (e.g. http://<machinename>). The Advanced button next to this text field allows the user to enter a specific port for the server.

Domain

Enter the complete domain.

NOTE: In some network environment, there may be no Domain needed on login credentials. In some cases, the WSDL service may be unable to resolve a friendly domain name  when authenticating, causing an error. Sending the credentials without the domain name causes AD to be responsible for resolving it, which AD will do by using the default domain.

User Name

Enter the user name for this connection.

Password

Enter the password for the user entered above. Then test the connection to make sure the settings are entered correctly.
