Have you assigned the Course Role of "exam proctor" to the proctor user?
Also, I assume that you are using the password which you typed in when you created the "slot" (not the proctor's own password)?

Have you limited the slot to particular IPs?  If so you will have to be using one of those computers.
Is your test student user actually enrolled in the correct section?

(It seemed to work OK for me when I tried it using a couple of dummy usernames, one as "exam proctor" and the other as enrolled student, in a particular section, for my own IP (which I included when editing the "slot".)

Also, usually, newly set parameters do not take "immediate" affect.  You might try logging out and logging in again a few minutes later (maybe on a different server).

Proctor Validation 

I set up a slot, and assigned the slot name to the slot of availability for a folder. The slot requires the proctor to validate it. So when a student logs in they get a Proctor Validation screen, which is awesome. However, when I enter the proctor's username and password, it doesn't let the student through. 

The message is: Failed to authenticate the proctor. 

I am not sure if I'm missing a step.
