InfoPath either cannot connect to the data source or the service has timed out.


This error is one we get confronted with quite a lot (especially our juniors 🙂 ). As a clear fix isn’t really described out there I’ll put it here and hope it bubbles up on google 🙂

If you are using http://localhost in your webservice url, use http://servername. That should do the trick.
