Visual Studio 2008 Source Control Setting for Team Foundation 2005

We are currently using Team Foundation Server 2005 as our source control and use both Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 in our environment.   We have downloaded and installed the Team Foudation Explorer 2008 to be used with VS2008, and I have a couple of workstations that are setup correctly.  
I have one workstation that I cannot properly set the Source Control settings.  In the Tools/Options/Source Control configuration page I have selected the Visual Studio Team Foundation Server as the current source control plug-in.   In the VSTFS configuration page I have set the Source Control proxy settings identical to our VS2005 settings.   When I click Ok to save the settings I get the following error.

(see attached)
TF15044 - Unable to connect to this Team Foundation Proxy Server: http://SERVERNAME:8080.
Possible reasons for this failure include:
 - The Team Foundation Proxy Server name, port number, or protocol is incorrect
 - The Team Foundation Proxy Server is offline.
 - Password is expired or incorrect.

I can connect to team explorer and source control explorer, and view source control files from VS2008.   I can also use VS2005 and check files in and out without issue.   I have installed the latest service pack for VS2008, and I attempted to set these properties with different users on the same workstation.  I do have other workstations in my environment using VS2008 without issue.

Any ideas on how to resolve this without upgrading to TFS2008?

are you actually using the proxy or not ? 
if not you may want to remove the option from Tools>options>source control >Visual Studio Team foundation server
also , my 2 cents , with this setup , where you using VS2008 & Team explorer 2008 without having TFS 2008 , you are looking at a world of problems , several incompatibility issues , especially in team based functions like Team builds,etc... 
so if I were you I would upgrade and save myself the trouble.
