Ajax debugging issues in VS Widget beta

I have an ajax request in my widget that works when running in IE 6, but when running in Visual Studio, I no longer can get to my web service.


I have added my local domain to the config.xml ( TongueortNumber). I'm trapping for the browser type and choosing the correct xmlHttpResponse.


Any ideas on why  would be recieving a 500 response debugging in the widget plug in and a success with IE on the same machine?

It could be the use of as the URL.  Everything is going through the MDS-CS that can have difficulties with localhost, depending on configuration and environmental settings.


Try using the fully qualified domain name of your computer instead of
