Its by design, if you are trying to connect to Project Server 2007 using Project Pro 2010

Thanks for the info but I'm not using Project Server 2007.  I have Project 2010 Pro on my Workstation.  Backend is SharePoint 2010 Ent (SQL2008 R2 as it's database on a separate server) with Project 2010 Server installed on the SharePoint Server.

Apologies for the late reply.  Downloaded and checked permissions.  Full permission for Log on to Project Server from Project Pro.

Did a bit more digging in the logs on the Sharpoint/ Project and SQL 2008 Servers and found errors relating to authentication to databases that no longer existed.

Once got those sorted out, have been able to access project web app through Project Pro on workstation
