Setting up VCS root for TFS 2013 preview


I am trying to setup a TeamCity server over my TFS 2013 preview and I am getting a nasty message (Below) any help will be useful since I need to setup my CI before Monday.
Both TFS and TeamCity are hosted in-house on separate machines. I have installed Team Explorer for preview (
in CI server. In my TC project setup when I hit "Test Connection" on Adding a NEW VCS root, test fails with below error.

I know when TFS and TC are hosted on the same machine it works properly but in my current configuration (separate server for TFS and TC) it won't work!

Error message:

TFS failed. ExitCode: 111, command: C:\TeamCity\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\plugins\tfs\bin\tfs-native.exe @@C:\TeamCity\temp\TC-TFS-40-8960_11\command.params, in file: {http://myserver:port/tfs/DefaultCollection, /hash:S, /noProxy, C:\TeamCity\temp\TC-TFS-40-8960_10.result, ConnectionTest, $/teamname/solutionFolder}, completed in: 0 second(s)

Thanks for you help!
