Access to this web server is disabled by default because it is controlled by Basic Authentication and does not use Secure Socket Layer (SSL). Do you want to search the Microsoft Online Support Center to view possible solution?

I got this error when i tried to connect to  a SharePoint site using SharePoint designer. since I'm using Windows7 home premium as my development environment i configured the SharePoint to use basic  authentication which does not support SSL authentication.

But Microsoft provide hot fix to overcome this situation. You need to download and install the fix mentioned below.
