You say you tried the sample code, but it did not work.  What kind of errors are you receiving?  Did you follow the registration steps listed in the link from dhansmani?  Have you tried contacting FedEx Tech support to see if they can tell you what is wrong (877-339-2774)?  Did you download their sample code or run their new Web Wizard?

This means something in your Developer credentials is off.  Make sure you have the right credentials for the right site.  There are two sites - one with the word beta and you should use your development credentials on that one.  On the site without beta in the URL, use your production credentials.  Make sure your credentials are correct from when you registered.  I suggest copy and paste method as they can be easy to type incorrectly.  Make sure you have the right values in each field of Key, Password, Account Number and Meter Number.  

If you are using the sample code and have not changed the URL, make sure to use the development credentials.

My site is not using Developer Credentials. We are customizing solution with our own code.

If you want to use the FedEx Web Services to retrieve a rate quote you MUST register with them and get developer credentials.  otherwise you will not be able to retrieve rates.  Please see the link posted by dhansmani or goto www.fedex.com/us/developer and create a log in.  Then follow the link to get started using Shipping Web Services and get your development credentials from FedEx.  The code will not work until you have those.

citadelind,

Even if you write your own code to generate an xml file, the xml file must contain the Developer credentials (Key, Password, Account Number and Meter Number).  Otherwise you will continue to receive a Authentication Failed reply from the Web Server.

It all you are doing is a rate request, you should just be able to click on move to production.  They have two service types - Standard and Advanced.  The advanced services require approval from FedEx.  When you move to production, it will then generate a new key, password, and meter number for you.  Use your live FedEx account number.  Make sure that you adjust to using the production server (remove the word beta from the url).
