Calling REST services from .NET client

Philip Reed (3654) | asked May 10 '10, 11:27 a.m.
I'm attempting to gain access to project area resources from a .NET client application. However, form-based authentication isn't working for some reason. From my debugging, it appears the requests are generated correctly but the request for j_security_check times out. It may be a session management problem but I've verified that the session id is correctly included in the Cookie: header. I can manually authenticate via URL from a browser window using the same URL string. Any ideas?

Nevermind...I figured it out. It was a minor mistake, but difficult to find.
