    The long wait is over. Now I need to test it before I push it out to our CAD mappers.

    Very timely for our CAD-GIS process kick off next week.

    How do I connect to a secured server (https) with SP1? I can see the services after I create the connection but when I add the layer I get a 403 forbidden error.

      Please take a look at the help system for this information. It will show how to fill in the dialog to connect to a secured server with the appropriate credentials.

    There seems to be a problem when the viewport is twisted…

    To Don Kuehne,

    How do I specify the fields and records in AutoCAD to correspond to the fields and records in the ARCGIS feature service.

    Seems I do it one at a time in AutoCAD?

    Never done it on hte server side. My guess is manuually setting it up each time?

    I have a schema specified in XSD/XML for all the data pickup fields.

    When the schema changes how much effort is invovled in the changes?
