    Note After you apply this hotfix, the wizard starts another connection by using a URL that does not have the "/tfs" ending.
  • When you connect to a TFS 2010 server for the CodePlex Web site, you receive an error message that resembles the following:
    TF31002:Unable to connect to this Team Foundation Server: https://xxx.codeplex.com/.

    Team Foundation Server Url: https://xxx.codeplex.com/. Possible reasons for this failure include the following:

    • The TFS 2010 server is offline.
    • The password has expired or is incorrect.

  • A TFS 2010 server is configured to use a Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) reverse proxy. The server is also configured to perform authentication over an HTTPS connection. When you try to access the TFS 2010 server, you receive the following error message:
    TF31001: Cannot connect to Team Foundation Server at xxx.codeplex.com. The server returned the following error:
    The ServicePointManager does not support proxies with the https scheme.
