CanvasIFrameLoginControl fails in windows azure (port 20000)

Dec 9, 2009 at 1:07 AM

Hello gurus,

I have a iframe application hosted in azure.
We are using CanvasIFrameLoginControl in our canvas aspx page.

The following is happening:

Facebook Canvas Callback URL is pointing to (Default.aspx is opened when root is opened)
Default.aspx has a CanvasIFrameLoginControl with requireLogin = true
It fails when it's called, and shows the following message:

"The Facebook Connect cross-domain receiver URL ( must have the application’s Connect URL ( as a prefix. You can configure the Connect URL in the Application Settings Editor"

When we host the site on a non-azure sever it works fine. It has something to do with the azure 20000 port.

Any ideas?

I have the exact same problem. When logging in to Facebook it calls back to

Did you figure out how to fix this?

To address this issue in the 3.1 Beta SDK, in Facebook.Session.CanvasSession.GetNextUrl(), I changed:

return HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.ToString().Replace(props["callback_url"], string.Format("{0}/", props["canvas_name"]));


return HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.ToString().Replace(":20000","").Replace(props["callback_url"], string.Format("{0}/", props["canvas_name"]));
