I am using ArcCatalog to connect to published services by local data partners.  I have successfully established connections for many services.

One on particular is stumping me.

I am able to see the REST services in a browser (IE and Chrome).  However, if I try to connect via ArcCatalog using: http://gisweb2.durhamnc.gov/arcgis/services I get an error message.

I can launch the services through the REST point in JavaSript, ArcGIS Online… but not in ArcMap.  For example by clicking on ArcGIS JavaScript or ArcGIS.com Map:

http://gisweb2.durhamnc.gov/arcgis/rest/services/DurhamMaps/BikeMap_NAD83/MapServer

Any ideas?

Depending on what version of ArcGIS you are using, try this instead

that is, add add "rest" between the argis and services.

Yes I tried that.  The error message says no resource can be found at that address.  I am using ArcGIS 10.1

I should have mentioned I was using 10.3. 

I no longer have a 10.1, but in 10.0 I used   http://gisweb2.durhamnc.gov/arcgis/services

http://gisweb2.durhamnc.gov/arcgis/services

and it worked.  Maybe a limitation in your network?
