    4. Cannot connect Windows Phone 7 to Sharepoint 2010


      Hi all,

      What are the exact conditions to enable the connectivity from Windows Phone 7 to Sharepoint 2010 ?

      I have a Sharepoint site, with access from outside through https://remote.domain.com:987 and will access from the WP7.

      The mobile say that is an error in the authentification process.

      I'm searching and found that NTLM is not supported from the mobile ... I see the ASP.NET FBA must be used ?

      The access within Internet browsing is OK on the mobile. I can browse the sites and download documents. I don't want change the authentification method for other devices (PC/notebook).

      What I need to change in my Sharepoint site and how ?

      Thanks by advance !

    Windows Phone 7 with your Mac


    Yes, I might report to the Death Star every morning and Darth Ballmer (and I like it, too), but it's true that I still have plenty o' Macs around the house. I'm just not able to be religious one way or another, even for the company I work for. But you may have heard that Microsoft was buying their employees Windows Phones, and today was the first day we could get them. Truth be told, I was converted a long time ago, when I saw some of the first demos.

    So today, I happily relinquished my iPhone 3GS, and put that naughty SIM card into the Samsung Focus at an AT&T store in Redmond. It. Is. Awesome. For all of the messing around with prototypes and such, you don't really start to appreciate it until you start populating it with your various accounts. If I were to describe the promise of WP7, it's that the age of syncing crap to a desktop computer is almost gone. Almost.

    I always sync'd my phone to my iMac, because I use Aperture for photo stuff, and, for reasons I can't quite explain, the Mac version of iTunes has always been a stronger performer. When I learned there was a Mac Connector app, that sealed the deal for me. I would get the new phone as soon as I could. So here's how you evolve to the new world as a Mac user.
