Just installed team foundation server 2010 service pack 1 from a MSDN volume license my company holds on a virtual machine running microsoft windows server 2008 R2 Enterprise service pack 1.   Trying to access the TFS from visual studio 2010 on a laptop running windows 7 that is on the local network/company intranet with the virtual machine.

I am unable to connect to the foundation server from visual studio 2010.  The URL is http://myServer:8080/tfs/myProject.  (myServer and myProject are placeholders for the real name which is withheld for security reasons).

Current trouble shooting steps:

I am able to ping the host server from the laptop.
I am able to ping the laptop from the host server.
Port 8080 is open.  
I can connect to http://localhost:8080/ from the host (shows It Works!)
I can connect to http://myServer:8080/ from the laptop (Shows It Works!)
Internet Explorer proxy settings are correct.

Can NOT browse to http://localhost:8080/tfs/ or http://localhost:8080/tfs/myproject from the host

Can NOT browse to http://myServer:8080/tfs/ or http://myServer:8080/tfs/myProject from the laptop.

If I test the notification URL from change URLs within the TFS administrator the test does not work (notification URL: http:ftlwservices:8080/tfs)

Turned out to be the default website in IIS was using port 8080.  I changed to port 8081 and all was well.

the url in my team foundation server properties is http://tfs::8080/xxx

the xxx is the project group which contains my projects. as far as i know you cannot connect to a single project but only a project group where you were authorized to.
