Has anyone done a Remote System Configuration to TFS 2013? I get Error: Failed to authorize user.

I'm using on prem TFS 2013. I've tried at least 3 users all are TFS admin users.

    Try to navigate to the web-site, select the "Security" tab under your User's profile, and enable the alternate authentication credentials. 


    Check whether the Collaborator server fails with the "User name (secondary)" username parameter.

    Thanks for your reply.


    Unfortunately when I access "" web-site there is no "Security" tab in my user profile. I was also unable to find any reference to "alternate authentication credentials".


    Would you have any other suggestions?
