[Evolution] Evolution and Exchange

Hello all,

I'm having some trouble connecting to exchange via the
evolution-connector.  Here are the symptoms...any ideas?

Software versions:
Fedora Core 4, with "testing" updates

[sfarber localhost ~]$ rpm -q -a |grep evolution

I then run ximian-connector-setup-2.2 to try to create my exchange
account.  It lets me enter the OWA url (which I can verify with 'wget
--http-user --http-passwd' works just fine and isn't a redirect).  My OWA
url is of the form:


I enter this URL, and then enter my login as:

DOMAIN\username (note that my username is different than my

I get the error message "Could not authenticate to the Exchange server.
Make sure the username and password are correct and try again."

In addition, I get the following libsoup critical error on stdout. 
Nothing in any syslogs.

[sfarber localhost ~]$ ximian-connector-setup-2.2

(ximian-connector-setup-2.2:11906): libsoup-CRITICAL **:
soup_connection_send_request: assertion `conn->priv->socket != NULL'

There seem to be a number of both fedora and gnome bugs surrounding this
issue (http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=302183 cheif among them?)
but I'm not totally sure they're applicable to me.

If it's any help, it's just regular old http-basic authentication on OWA,
over HTTPS.

Any ideas?  I'm comfortable building from source if that's
necessary...anything to get rid of this other windows box under my desk!

Thanks much.
