    Resolution

     

    We have validation code to limit the web service that can be called from the same AppServer machine.
    To bypass this validation, add the following entry in the <appSettings> section of the web.config file on the AppServer in C:\Program Files\HEAT Software\HEAT\AppServer directory:


        <add key="ValidateInternalWebService" value="false" />


    The absence of the key means “to validate”.
