Sharepoint 2013 and ADFS Issue

I am having an issue.  I have setup my Sharepoint 2013 with SSL and that all works fine.  I then set it up to use ADFS per the following Article:

http://www.demantprasad.com/2012/07/configuring-claims-based-authentication.html

I am now trying to login to the site using ADFS and I get directed to the ADFS login screen.  I then type in my login credentials and nothing happens.  The login screen just stays on the screen.  That is with Chrome.

When I use IE I don't even get the login screen.   I just get a page saying The Website has a Programming Error.  You can see it is trying to go to the _trust virtual directory and that directory is there.  The link above specified that.

What am I doing wrong

you have to fix the underlying error.. IE will use the digest or windows authentication directly whereas chrome doesn't use this methodology.  Is the claims agent running on the SharePoint server?

I have not installed the claims agent on sharepoint.  Do you have a link for that.  Also where do I correct the IE authentication error at?

If you had followed the article you had mentioned in your initial post it would have told you about it.

How to configure claims agent (near the bottom of the page)

It is not an IE authentication error

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

It looks like everything is setup, but in chrome it will not accept my login.  The login window just pops up and never logs me in.  In IE I go to the site and get the login window.  I choose ADFS and get the login window.  I type my login and I get redirected to the screen attached to this post.  What is wrong.

In IE and Chrome I can login in fine with Windows Authentication.  Neither will let me in with ADFS.  I know there is a config I am missing somewhere.

Maybe I will just use ssl and Windows Authentication as that seems to be working just fine.

You know ADFS isn't a requirement to use Claims Auth, correct?

No I do not know that.  I just want to make my sharepoint available to outside user in the most secure way.

ADFS would only be required if you are trying to authenticate someone from a different organization.  For your people to authenticate using claims, it's not required to use ADFS.
