Problem connecting to web service if company name contains () - NAV2013

Hi all,

I am experiencing a strange issue with web services on NAV2013.

Recently i created a web service for one of my clients, and published it as is should.
So far so good.
I tested that is could connect to the WS/Services url on localhost on the server, and told the external developer that he could acces the web service.

However he came back to me and told that he was presented with an error.

So i tested the full url for the actual web service in the company on localhost on the server, and got an error that the service could not be found.
Trying to connect to other company in the same database, where company name does not contain (), works fine on localhost on the server.

I then tested in same build of NAV2013 on an installation on my laptop, and there i have no problem connecting to a web service in a company that has () in its name.

So i guess the cause of this issue is to be found in the environment on the server, and not in the NAV2013 software.

The server is Win2008R2.
My laptop is Win10

Has anyone else experienced this?
And more important, has anyone an idea how i can get past this?
(Without renaming the company of course. :))

TIA

Regards
// Alexander
