Description mwg@thoughts.net 2016-12-01 02:21:50 UTC
When attempting to add a connection from VS to my MAC for my cross-platform solution, although I can add both the UserID and Password in the popup dialog, the "Login" button is not enabled. Similarly, right clicking on an existing connection, "Remove" is not enabled. Existing connections have a expired password, hence the reason I am trying to replace them. I have logged on into VS as both the user and the system admin to have the same results. I am using the latest updates for both VS and Xamarin.

How do I enable the functionality? Thanks.
