Adding an RSS Feed Webpart to a MOSS 2007 SharePoint page


Today I ventured on presumably what would seem to be quite a simple task of adding a Sharepoint RSS Feed to my "MySite".

I added the webpart and using the modify shared webparts editor pointed the RSS Feed URL property to the necessary URL Feed. However when I applied the change I was presented with the following error instead of my RSS Feed:

"An unexpected error occurred processing your request check the logs for detail and correct problem"

I looked though my Sharepoint’s Server event log to find no useful information regarding the error. After looking through a few Google hits I found that the editing of the web.config file was required to be done for this component to access the proxy server.

After making the following change to the web.config file:

!!! Remember to back your web.config file before editing it !!!

…..<system.net>

<defaultProxy>

<proxy autoDetect="true" proxyaddress="YOURPROXYSERVER" bypassonlocal="true" />

</defaultProxy>

</system.net>….

Remember that if you use a fully qualified proxy name be sure to put http:// in front of it. I haven’t tried it but apparently it doesn’t work without it. 

Protocol Error occurred trying to complete the request. The server returned a status code of : ProxyAuthenticationRequired and the status description is : "Proxy Authentication Required ( The ISA Server requires authorization to fulfill the request. Access to the Web Proxy service is denied. )"

This error at least is a bit more explanatory and involves you getting the feeds URL to the list of exception URL’s on your ISA server. However the two problems with this is that depending on your IT department they might see it as a security risk and disallow it and secondly each time a new feed is required on a MySite you’ll need to speak to someone in the IT department to get it added to the exclusion list making it quite an extensive task.

I’ve been looking for other methods but seem unable to find a more seamless way to get it done. If anyone knows of another way or a work around to this method please feel free to enlighten me as I feel this is an extremely useful webpart and with the XSL styling ability could produce a good return as a standard SharePoint webpart.Big Smile

The exclusion list is the only option an easily sold. As the only way to access the web is from either the SP Server via Remote Desktop or through the SP itself using links in it, most IT Gurus are happy to allow the IP address of the server through the firewall directly.

I have most of my clients using proxy servers, and apart from the delay in the work actually getting done I have never had problems with allowing the SP box to completely bypass a firewall or proxy server. MS has promised improvements in the next release.

we always add the SP servers to a special ‘unauthenticated’ client set in ISA that a rule applies to which allows them out
