I published a WFS service using MapServer. The source of the WFS layer is a FGDB.

When I add the service in QGIS, it works flawlessly. When I add the service in ArcMap, all I can see is a layer named NoGeometry.

In ArcMap, I used 'Add Interoperability Connection', I chose the format WFS (Web Feature Service). In the Dataset, I put the the URL http://localhost:8080/cgi-bin/mapserv.exe?map=C:\ms4w\Apache\htdocs\aca\test.map

See the screenshot for the rest of the parameters.


When I drag the layer to add it to the map, I get this error: "This dataset appears to be invalid. Please verify that your settings or file contents are correct, and try again".

Where is the problem??
