Format:

http://{yourgeoserver}:{port}/geoserver/wms?Service=WMS&Request=GetCapabilities

Working Example:

http://demo.opengeo.org/geoserver/wms?Service=WMS&Request=GetCapabilities

According to the WMS specification, the value part of name=[value]& parameter pairing is case sensitive, so the correct format here is actually:
