unable to automatically step into the server.



Im integrating with salesforce, while debugging i got an error.please help me. how i can overcome this.


The error is :

"unable to automatically step into the server.connecting to the server machine ' failed.The debugger cannot connect to the remote computer.This may be because the remote computer does not exist or a firewall may be preventing communication to remote server"

1. Please see whether you have appended security token with the password while logging in.

2. Go to the user record(of the user that you are using to login from dotnet) in browser and see the login history at the bottom of hte page. This may give you more meaningful message on whether ur dotnet login is able to come upto salesforce and failed, or it did not even reach salesforce.

3. Please make sure the user used for login is API enabled.(it is a checkbox in user record).

I am also having same issue here. I checked your steps and I could see the login attempt with success status in the log history. Still I am getting the error. Please let me know what might be the reason. Your help will be really appreciated. Thanks in advance

I didn't get any solution. but at last i thought its a error not from salesforce. it is from .net application . i.e, because we didn't  connected remote debugger to our application.still im getting same error.



If you found any solution please let me know.


Thanks in advance
