Next you need to provide the Web Service URLs for the Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP and for the Microsoft Dynamics Security Admin Service.

The Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP URL will be along the lines of http://<machinename>:<port>/DynamicsGPWebServices/DynamicsGPService.asmx where you need to swap out the machine name and port for the server and port you installed the Web Services. In my case the machine name is azc-2011-crm and the port is the default of 48620.

The same needs to be done for the Microsoft Dynamics Security Admin Service where the structure is http://<machinename>:<port>/DynamicsAdminService.asmx which will typically run on port 48621;
