I re-installed the web deployment tool using the WebDeploy_2_10_amd64_en-US.msi and set everything up as documented in the article
http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/516/configure-the-web-deployment-handler/ and then I tried deploying a web project from my desktop machine to the server - and it worked perfectly!
So then I had my team members try this from their computers but they get a deployment failed message like this:
An unsupported response was received. The response header 'MSDeploy.Response was '' but 'v1' was expected.
The remote server returne an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required.
I have searched and searched but the only thing I can find is that the service needs to be started - and it is. What I cannot understand is why I can run the web deploy from my desktop to the remote server but my team mates cannot. One of them could be
due to the fact that she does not yet have administrator access on the server, but the other team member does. I use this web deploy all the time at home between my desktop there and my remote hosting server and I love the Web Deploy tool. If we cannot get
this to work here then we'll have to go back to the painful ways of copying and pasting all of our web files from desktop to the server. I hope someone can help with this.
Proxy Authentication Required

When there is a proxy in the middle, the proxy server can make the conversation complex, similar to this one,
You need to work with the network administrators in your firm to see how to make proxy authentication work (to fix the 407 error).
