Having trouble figuring out the path for wms

Hi All,
I am trying to use Autodesk MapGuide Studio to connect to a wms server, powered by MapServer, using the latest wms/wfs connectors, but I can't seem to figure out the path and can't find any documentation on this. The MapServer documentation suggests a path something like
With a whole bunch of extra parameters after it, whereas a MapGuide Studio connection to (say) geoserver seems only to require
http://yourhost/geoserver/wms <http://yourhost/geoserver/wms> 
The first option gives me an error that states 
System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (559) MgFdoException.
   at Autodesk.MapGuide.Studio.Site.Comm.RequestManager.ExecutePendingGetRequestToString(Operation operation)
   at Autodesk.MapGuide.Studio.Site.Comm.RequestManager.TestConnection(String resourceId, String provider, String connectionString)
   at Autodesk.MapGuide.Studio.Site.FeatureSourceInfo.TestConnection()
Which is fair enough since I didn't think it was correct, but has anyone managed to make a connection from Studio to a MapServer map, and what path did they use?
Many thanks
