Connect MS Project 2007 Client to MS Project 2007 Server?

I have Project 2007 Server installed on a stand-alone machine.  I also have Project 2007 Client installed on my workstation.  I am aware of how to configure the client to connect to the server, however i am having problems not being able to access it.  

Does my Project Server have to be part of a windows domain to access?

I see there are two ways to connect; windows authentication, and forms authentication.  How would i use forms authentication?

All i am trying to accomplish is to connect my client to the server and upload a ghannt chart to be visible over the net.

Any help is appreciated!

I suppose you have configured your MSP client and have added a Projectserver account that points to your Projectserver URL and have set this account to be the default?
Do you see an error when you try to connect or does MSP just start and you don't connect to the Projectserver? If there are no special requirements you would always use "Windows authentication", in this case you also need to add your windows account as a user in Server Settings..Manage Users in PWA.

Please let me know what error you are getting!


If your Project Server is installed on a standalone machine, not a member of the domain, then users will need local accounts on that machine to connect to Project Server. When you set up a user, you will need to enter their user account as "machinename\useraccount."

Before trying to connect with Project Pro, you should try to connect to PWA from Internet Explorer. You need to get that working first.
